It seems as if it’s been a very long time since I’ve written anything about MOOCs. To be honest, I’ve been avoiding clicking on MOOC links entirely in order to avoid the urge to write about them. Unfortunately for everyone, last week I accidentally came across a story with a MOOC section so scary that it should send shivers down every faculty member’s spine everywhere.
Sourced through Scoop.it from: moreorlessbunk.net
Highlights many of the concerns and misconceptions around MOOCs – there are many drivers and most commentary does not even consider the total system of interactions that is making MOOCs appealing in many places.
My prediction is that people not able to conceive of the scalable and accessible education system and the data streams that MOOCs can provide will be the ones who begin to struggle with the emerging global economy.
MOOCs are not an end… and I think that’s what many people miss.
