Chris Carter's comment, August 5, 2013 9:25 PM
Thank you, Mary. Symbaloo seemed to me to be no more that a visually appealing list of web links, but as I used it I realized that being visually pleasing actually is important. Further, my ability to move the links around and group them by purpose, subject, etc., was quite useful as well. Finally, my ability to share the symbaloo page, and effortlessly update & re-share made Symbaloo an important addition to my tool box.

Why massive open online courses (still) matter

2013 was a year of hype for MOOCs (massive open online courses). Great big numbers and great big hopes were followed by some disappointing first results. But the head of edX, Anant Agarwal, makes the case that MOOCs still matter -- as a way to share high-level learning widely and supplement (but perhaps not replace) traditional classrooms. Agarwal shares his vision of blended learning, where teachers create the ideal learning experience for 21st century students.
Chris Carter's insight:

MOOCs will fill niches and focus on specific skills. My 2 cents.
