Interesting remarks on the future of online learning. Mobile is the way to go, but...

Roberto Ivan Ramirez's comment, April 11, 2013 7:55 PM
Why boring? not is enough the online tools and activities, or need other innovative systems and models

“Before smartphones, we went online roughly five times a day, in long chunks, according to Joe Kraus, a partner at Google Ventures. Today, with smartphones, it’s 27 times, in much shorter bursts.

Well written and concise sobering and critical opinion piece; can help us refocus on few critical points in designing MOOCs or any online learning actually, especially when you are in the high euphoric phase.
