Who's driving the MOOC juggernaut?  Who's interests are served by the developments in this area?  Somewhere a price is being paid - what is it and who's paying?

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, April 30, 2013 2:53 PM

I think MOOCs have an enormous potentinal to educate the disenfranchised.  The potential for good in this open resource oriented sharing of knowledge is enormous.  The potential for immediate dollar profit?... no so much.  In the US most students simply don't have the discipline or desire to educate themselves using the remarkable resources gathered in any Mooc.  I don't see this as displacing traditional Hire Ed in the U.S.   


I think of MOOCs as bread upon the waters, the ripple effect of educating the world will take awhile to build, but should eventually create significant waves of improvement for all.  (Call me PollyAnna, but I see Moocs as a manefestation of abundance that can do real good in the real world.)
