Nik Peachey's curator insight, May 12, 2013 2:48 AM

Interesting video on MOOCs. It's beginning to look like anything that is online education is now being called a MOOC. It's like an echo from 20 years ago when e-learning started taking off. Seems like a lot of people are really missing the point.

Ruth Vilmi's curator insight, May 12, 2013 3:45 AM

This is not new - I taught the International Writing Exchange (IWE) from 1993, but technology allows much more nowadays. Go for it and learn whatever your heart desires!  Go for challenging courses though, not a book on the Web!! 

Lola Ripollés's curator insight, May 12, 2013 4:10 AM

Information and knowledge is there. Only you decide what to make of it.

Sharing knowledge will always give you back more than what you give.
