John leeds takes a TED talk on design for people as his starting point for a discussion of the design of education. He contrasts formal education with MOOC-based education, seeming to suggest, mistakenly, that with MOOCs Open Distance Education started. And then he discusses a number of outstanding key questions, such as whether MOOCs have entry requirements, whether connectivist or instructvist learning through MOOCs beter meets peoples wishes, and what is the goal of education.
