Tony Bates: Daniel’s comprehensive review of MOOC developments

Tony Bates: Daniel’s comprehensive review of MOOC developments | MOOC: Massive Open Online Courses | Scoop.it

"Daniel, J. (2012) Making sense of MOOCs: Musings in a maze of myth, paradox and possibility Seoul: Korean National Open University

This is the most thorough, comprehensive and balanced overview and analysis of MOOCs that I have read. This is not surprising since Sir John Daniel has had a long and distinguished career in open and distance learning, including being President of the Commonwealth of Learning and Vice-Chancellor of the UK Open University. He is currently a visiting research fellow at the Korean National Open University and an Education Master at DeTao Masters Academy, China. He thus knows of what he speaks."

I wholeheartedly agree, this was the first paper I ever read on MOOCs and it was very clear and beautifully presented.  A clear and informed outline of what the impact of MOOCs will be.  Highly recommended.

Proponents praise them for their potential to change education, while critics chalk them up as more hype than hope.

Au delà de la notion de rentabilité des plateformes stricto sensus, d'autres notions rentrent en ligne de compte, comme l'image de marque des universités, la captation du marché de l'éducation...

Massive MOOC Dropouts: Are We Really Okay With That? | MOOC: Massive Open Online Courses | Scoop.it

I’m starting to get more than a little grumpy about MOOCs, what with all the hype about the revolutionary disruptions and game-changing tsunamis.
