If You Believe in MOOCs, You Are Assuming Too Much | NeoAcademic | Richard N. Landers

"In summary, I think MOOCs are an important development for higher education, but they are not poised to majorly reform anything.  At best, they can supplement and bolster existing efforts by replacing remedial and entry level courses, leaving the more advanced topics for the traditional college classroom, online or otherwise.  As MOOCs improve, this may change – but for now, this is the best they can provide."

Good discussion of someone who is cretical of many of the claims that are made about MOOCs. The story unfolds by discussing (and debunking) 5 commonly made assumptions about what MOOCs will achieve. They go from "If one class can be graded automatically, all classes can" to "Credentialing is not valuable" and "Discussion forums can effectively police themselves". (@pbsloep)
