Tony Bates: Daniel’s comprehensive review of MOOC developments

This is the most thorough, comprehensive and balanced overview and analysis of MOOCs that I have read. This is not surprising since Sir John Daniel has had a long and distinguished career in open and distance learning, including being President of the Commonwealth of Learning and Vice-Chancellor of the UK Open University. He is currently a visiting research fellow at the Korean National Open University and an Education Master at DeTao Masters Academy, China. He thus knows of what he speaks."

I wholeheartedly agree, this was the first paper I ever read on MOOCs and it was very clear and beautifully presented.  A clear and informed outline of what the impact of MOOCs will be.  Highly recommended.
