Sam Altman's insight:

Community College educators force institution to properly evaluate MOOC in their context.

 

Special emphasis on

"there is nothing to be lost in turning professors into glorified tutors, parts of a larger information delivery system. What this misses is the key fact that the heart of what we do as college educators has to do with the immeasurable human interaction that we have with our students and the vital social experience of the face-to-face classrooms". 

 

Community College aim at previously under-represented Groups PUGs
