There are lots of critics and media coverage on the “appreciation AND depreciation of MOOCs”.  If I were to recount the appreciation to depreciation, I think it could be 90% to 10% among media, whilst in the academic world it seems to be totally different, with less appreciation by many educators in particular.  Why?  I don’t have the answers here, and I don’t think it is possible to generalize the reasons behind such “pessimism” among the academics and educators.
