Over 40 years, Entrepreneurial Revolution research has identified 4 educational monopolies that have made students the main losers of education. MOOCs can breakthrough all 4 of these monopolies. It would surprise me if more than 10 % of professors want to use moocs to free every job creating possibility the net generation could be enjoying with today's extraordinary collaboration technology http://normanmacrae.ning.com/profiles/blogs/collaborate-in-entrepreneurial-revolution-of-pro-youth-economics

Chris Macrae's insight:

Back in 1972 dad ( Norman Macrae) and I first saw students experimenting with early digital networks. Dad thought this would be the greatest economic freedom ever - even greater than the industrial revolution's world of extracting carbon energy, Critically true knowlege multiplies values in use promising multi-win model of Economic Abundancy IF & ONLY IF we make fit investments in net generation and digital's open societies http://www.scoop.it/t/ineteconomics . Moblise around the rising exponential  opportunity  to free a borderless world of global villages from info-transmission cost of distance. OPEN everything but micro-up, as nature's system desiigns do. Recall Einstein proved every time man's over standardised science runs out of space, innovate by mapping at a more micro level of interaction.

 

Dad spent the rest of his life debating Entrepreneuial Revolution - with: readers of The Economist, Muhammad Yunus at dad's last public birthday 2008, and since his death in 2010 at events we co-host to advance the curriculum of pro-youth economics and pro-youth education. Pictured is celebration fromThe Economist boardroom 2010. We'e looking for the top 50 9-minute transcripts of curriculum of Entrepreneurial Revolution http://normanmacrae.ning.com/forum/topics/open-source-transcripting-of-curriculum-year-42-the-economist-s guided by dad's 7 wonders ER thinkpad - 7 trillion dollar markets whose purposes we need to free the sustainabiliy of youth around first http://www.scoop.it/t/purpose-by-chris-macrae

 

With almost every idea dad wrote about, some big power sponsored academics to take the idea and reverse its pro-youth meaning. Dad hoped his open eucation & open society fiends would have the last laugh by making Entrepreneur the most celebrated word in the pro-youth economic vocabulary. You know the French origin of the E-word refers to: will society design a better system when it has just been forced to guillotine the heads of the few who are monopolising all productive assets?

 

 By 1984 dad's book on net generation 1984-2024 was one of first to argue for collaboration millennium goal of ending poverty - not just on moral grounds. As father wrote: by 2000s, man's greatest compound risk will be seen to be the discrepancy of incomes and expectations of rich and poor nations. Dad scripted a role for the BBC (and all world service publicly owned  media) to help solve the challenge of searchnig for 30000 open microfranchises which we are now dangeously behind mediating.

 

2013 is 170th year since James Wilson founded The Economist to mediate the end of hunger and the end of capital abuse of youth. Plus ca change ... To Be Or Not To Be

Report: Course Topic Biggest Motivator for MOOC Participation -- Campus Technology | 2013 The Year of The MOOC & The Economist's 170th birthday | Scoop.it
Course topic is the biggest motivating factor for participants in massive open online courses and quality of the learning experience is the main reason they complete the courses or quit early, according to a new survey performed by Qualtrics.

Via Peter Mellow
Chris Macrae's insight:

yes especially courses that 1) have never been shared with youth before or 2) where million of aliumni interacting simultaneously can change the world - content is fascinating in assessing how much of an entrepreneurial revolution the mooc teacher is up for- is she or he williong to free youth from the 4 value chains that educators have monoplised - what is taught, what is researched, what is examined. what is acredited? Our collabortion surveys currently suggets only 10% of MOOC presenters are fully on youth's side at coursera whereas KhanAcademy is over 90% on youth's side - your feebdack welcome chris.macrae@yahoo.co.,uk  http://normanmacrae.ning.com

12 Reasons Why MOOCs Will Change the World | Social Learning Blog

As a learning consultancy, it’s important for us to stay at the forefront of the education landscape. Our clients rely on us to bring solutions that are both proven and fresh – not an easy task by any means. While not yet proven, a new learning trend that has caught my eye is MOOCs, which stands for “massively open online courses.” As many of you already know, MOOCs are free online courses taught by entrepreneurial enterprises, and now by universities as well.

Chris Macrae's insight:

part of the puzzle- until recently many uas universities had the cheek to charge students more for vitrtual courses- their argument being it was extra cost to them to maintain quality of degree (ie the university's reputation). This being a very odd way of appraising whethry pro-youth educators should be building more and more invory towers in this age of internet alumni

R Hollingsworth's curator insight, July 25, 2013 11:13 AM

It's always puzzled me that traditional #highered has a long history of offering correspondence courses (and later, large lecture halls depending on for-profit textbooks, and later still, telecourses accompanied by even more sophisticated for-profit textbooks and testbanks) with little or no oversight regarding quality.  But when online learning and then MOOCs hit the scene, it's as if there's something completely crazy and unnatural going on that needs extraordinary vigilance.

Fiona Harvey's curator insight, August 2, 2013 12:07 PM

Nice piece from Education Dive - links out to an article including Daphne Kollers views on how she has been using MOOCs to 'flip' her classroom. Just means that they are asking students to prepare for a lesson, which usually means asking them to take a quiz on the video that they should have watched to get the discussion going.  Think I'd need to try this out so that we can prepare students for a different form of teaching, otherwise they won't do it.  

Manuel León Urrutia's comment, August 3, 2013 4:45 AM
Let us hope we don't start orienting MOOC design for flipped classrooms only. Otherwise, how 'Massive', 'Open', and 'Courses will be?
