Context Is King: Why Today's MOOCs Don't Meet Corporate Needs | WIRED | The 21st Century | Scoop.it
courosa/Flickr In 1996, Bill Gates declared that “content is king.” Gates was talking about the Internet, and the publishing, creating, and accessing capabilities that came as a result. However, the same has been true in education for a very long time. Education — from elementary to college to corporate learning — has relied on the…

Why "Social Learning" should stay linked to MOOCs ?

 

Indeed, social activities should be learnt in a social way, not in teacher-student way in a classroom or in a MOOC.

 

I'm not sure though why the author talks about modern (not social) versus original (social) MOOCs. Both exist at the same time and the social aspect mostly depends on the skills taught.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, March 20, 4:17 AM

Savvy broadcast and media companies are putting more emphasis on social networks to keep the public informed.  Recent studies have shown that the "younger generation" will keep up with the news and public events if they are presented well on social media.  Even print outlets such as newspapers and magazines are publishing digital editions to appeal to younger audiences equipped with social media tools.  The communications future has arrived!  Aloha, Russ.

social media has value "in building relationships with customers, offering responsive technical support, and engaging efforts to establish a sustainable base of consumer advocates."

Alex Grech's curator insight, March 11, 6:01 PM

As usual, these things are never in black and white.  Looking for a direct, linear relationship between social media 'marketing' and the bottom seems equally flawed.

Gracie Marcoux's curator insight, March 24, 2:29 AM

The article, in summary, goes over how there are so many users of social media around the world, especially young adults. Apparently, terrorists absolutely love twitter. What we need to realize is that social media can be taken as a terrorism breeding house, and everyone is subjugated to its danger.

This applies to terrorism in Unit 4. How? Instead of direct attacks like 9/11, people are now targeted worlds away. And that's far more terrifying.
