Interested in success stories regarding Wikis in MOOCs. As a MOOC student, I have not found them to be very robust or helpful, but hopefully that will change as courses evolve.

I like this comment on the front page of the mobiMOOC, which addresses how people respond to MOOCs: "Many of the participants who went through a MOOC experience have had a powerful learning experience which in some cases resulted in strong personal or professional projects with impact. On the other hand the drop-out rate in a non-credited MOOC is high and some participants simply do not like the approach of a MOOC for it has specific dynamics. The diversity in appreciations and feelings is not new: the playground felt like a mental warzone to some and a great adventure to others."

Part of the move towards more Open Educational Resources, which is a good things, however ...

 

... publishers getting on the bandwagon and charging academics to publish their articles so that they are available to everyone. The end result is that there is more out there for everyone to read, but who is winning and who is losing?
