Instituto Iberoamericano de TIC y Educación – IBERTIC, Organizacion de Estados Iberoamericanos, Online via Adobe Connect to Madrid and Buenos Aires, Keynote, Jul 11, 2013.

In this talk I talk about the four major conditions, and four major design parameters, of massive open online courses - diversity, autonomy, openness and interactivity. In particular, I respond to a paper from Jenny Mackness, Roy Williams and Sui Fai John Mak called The Ideas and Reality of Participating in a MOOC. True, the paper is three years old, but I've always felt it deserved a considered response, and it provided an excellent platform for this talk. There is also a Q&A session, which I recorded, with audio available here.
