R Hollingsworth's curator insight, January 30, 2013 9:45 AM

Sad to see the authors have only one perspective on who does the designing (and why) for MOOCs ... they make it sound like a conspiracy plot rather than the hugely diverse and multifaceted movement it truly is. The authors start with a premise in mind then use the passive voice in a key introductory statement: "MOOCs are designed to impose, not improved learning, but a new business model on higher education, which opens the door for wide-scale profiteering."
