Naomi Monson's insight:

Authors Morris and Stommel have a discussion about what is a MOOC.  They introduce the article with the definition of describing it as a beast.  The article has many links trying to decide what is the true definition of a MOOC.

Personal Learning Environments

This paper looks at the history leading up to and helps define personal learning environments.  "Furthermore the idea of the
PLE purports to include and bring together all
learning, including informal learning, workplace
learning, learning from the home, learning driven
by problem solving and learning motivated by
personal interest as well as learning through
engagement in formal educational programmes."
