Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 18, 2013 12:56 AM

To be clear, Stephen's assertion of a great MOOC re-branding smacks of Edupunk (2008-2011, RIP). In spite of the first-sentence claim in the Edupunk Bible that this favorite movement died in 2011, Edupunk's rebellious redolence and distaste for all things formal can still be felt throughout online conversations today. Yes, the Edupunk spirit lives on; promulgated by Stephen and obviously flourishing among those who enjoy life in the "Schools Are Broken" fringes of society. To me, there is very little difference between the "We can do things on our own, who needs institutions?!?" attitude of an Edupunk, and the "We can do things on our own, who needs everyone else?!?" attitude of most private schools. Both attitudes are elitist, and ultimately in both sibling camps, some people win while other people lose.


And Stephen Downes' reply:

You can't say that your purpose was not to undermine existing university structure and then say this: " And ultimately, I really wanted to do it for free: that is, free access to participants using free publishing/delivery tools, freely accessible to all."

Existing universities are the opposite of free, the opposite of accessible.

That said, I take David's point about xMOOCs having "everything to do with needing to be in the New York Times." They were created by media machines. There's plenty of credit for these institutions jumping out front of a trend and then taking credit for it in the newspapers.
