MOOC experts surprised by how they're evolving

I would hesitate to call the three commentators in this article 'experts' but I do think their reflections on their initial exposures to MOOCs are interesting. Here's Rosental Alves of the Knight Centre, who has been running MOOCs on Journalism for a year or so: "Our MOOCs are a human experience. This is not a book. It's not a self-directed course. It has a beginning, middle and an end, and it is led by an instructor. These aren't college classes. It's a workshop and a community. We don't expect that everyone who comes will do it. We don't mind if you come, watch a video and go."
