Abstract

Potential for MOOCs to educate thousands en masse - "John Seely Brown calls this a "Cambrian moment," a time when small changes can have astonishing results because the paradigms themselves are in a process of transformation: lhttp://www.johnseelybrown.com/stanford2011.html MOOCs can be part of that transformative, epoch-making potential that began in April 1993 when the Mosaic 1.0 browser became available to the general public and, for the first time in history, anyone who had an idea could communicate that idea, instantly, to anyone else in the world who had access to the World Wide Web. Take that in. Breathtaking." Then goes on to talk about dislking talking head moocs, noting that "We don't want to be teaching in the worst possible way to the most possible people. We want to be learning the best ways to teach by doing careful, open-ended and open-minded research on exactly how massive numbers of people are learning online."
