The article raises some excellent points. We need to consider teaching and facilitating are not the same. MOOC's will have a role in education. The question is what that might look like?

Good discussion also in the comments section.

So many things to learn!  We need to figure out how to use these tools that our students will be relying on in the future.

Research: How Video Production Affects Student Engagement

edX recently commissioned a study of nearly 1,000 videos, segmenting them out by by video type and production style, and discovered this among their other findings:

Shorter videos are more engaging. Engagement drops after 6 minutes.Videos with a more personal feeling are more effective than high-fidelity studio recordings.
Videos in which the instructor speaks quickly and with high enthusiasm are more engaging.Khan-style tablet drawings are more engaging than power point slides.
