Tony Bates: Daniel’s comprehensive review of MOOC developments

Tony Bates: Daniel’s comprehensive review of MOOC developments | Higher Ed Technology | Scoop.it

"Daniel, J. (2012) Making sense of MOOCs: Musings in a maze of myth, paradox and possibility Seoul: Korean National Open University

This is the most thorough, comprehensive and balanced overview and analysis of MOOCs that I have read. This is not surprising since Sir John Daniel has had a long and distinguished career in open and distance learning, including being President of the Commonwealth of Learning and Vice-Chancellor of the UK Open University. He is currently a visiting research fellow at the Korean National Open University and an Education Master at DeTao Masters Academy, China. He thus knows of what he speaks."

Fiona Harvey's curator insight, August 17, 2013 2:12 PM

I wholeheartedly agree, this was the first paper I ever read on MOOCs and it was very clear and beautifully presented.  A clear and informed outline of what the impact of MOOCs will be.  Highly recommended.
