This really gets to the crux of technology in education. MOOCS really could be the key to future learning becasue with people graduating out of school more frequesntly, universities cannot accomodate them so technology has to fill the void to help more people get more accolodades to be more succesful.

Celene Maria Dos Santos's curator insight, October 25, 2013 6:38 PM

Any time I enter a class or my teaching "temple", I have a notion that I intend my student to end the class with a certain topic being visited. Most of the time it does happen, however the path we take to get there is the most fascinating way ever, for it may be that he and I will digress into several different universes before we are able to reach our goal. The extraordinary thing I still seek better knowledge to be able to explain is that there so much learning and sharing along the way I get mesmerized when it dawns on me how much further we have visited  together.
