Knowledge, Learning, Community

We now know what Creative Commons thinks of open education: it'll cost you. The price for its new online courses: $500. It's an online course for rich people. "The 10-week online course offers online instruction, a discussion forum and support for cohorts of approximately 25 learners per instructor." I don't see why Creative Commons could not have learned from the many lessons learned about offering open online learning, and I'm not sure I can trust Creative Commons as the host of an 'open education platform'.
