Without scanning the whole article, what do you think we can do to dive deeper into use patterns? That is, how can we go deeper than what is mentioned in this quote:

 

"They found that people take classes or stop for different reasons, and therefore referring globally to "dropouts" makes no sense in the online context. They identified four groups of participants: those who completed most assignments, those who audited, those who gradually disengaged and those who sporadically sampled. (Most students who sign up never actually show up, making their inclusion in the data problematic.) The point of all this is not simply to record who is doing what but to "provide educators, instructional designers and platform developers with insights for designing effective and potentially adaptive learning environments that best meet the needs of MOOC participants," the researchers wrote."

The greatest contribution of  MOOCs to education will not be the  demographic  and geograhic reach it claims to provide, but the disruption it creates on the limitations and previous beliefs of the instructivist pedagogy model. Data and learning analytics will document how the student, and more specifically,  how the brain learns.  The truism that "(s)he who speaks the most learn the most" will be based on data Collected and analyzed.  For now, we content that in teaching a class, that teacher has  learned the most. :)
