lots.. but just sharing this.. his insight on moocs

Thoughts on the future of MOOCs
by Bryan Alexander
1. plummet like second life
2. becomes a new model for higher ed
3. moocs claw their way into a niche and stop it.. 2 culture split between science and humanities – moocs key part of science… but won’t cross into humanities… so gaps and niches.. ie: arabic mooc..
interview a couple months earlier on moocs with Howard:
x moocs are more like lms – anchored on content that’s pushed out.. share course docs et al.. so kind of retro and/or parallel

howard & dean – web hosting

Great conversation about class community, social media, web hosting:@jimgroom…a voice… augmented by the community around it..blurring the course vs the community

Listening to a Middlebury College political economist speak on the fiscal cliff. Taxes will need to rise, entitlement growth must slow.

what scales is the teaching (to many) not necessarily the experience of those aiming to learn…?There is a better model out there for scaling open learning, it is right under our browsers… the web itself.huge. yes.
of rather than on… ness
