I spend a lot of time reading about and posting links on good stuff about MOOCs, notably the connectivist kind. That does not mean I am unaware of the dark side or its dangers ~ recognized them long before most doomsayers even knew they existed. Intel matters, so study them up close and learn as much about them as you can ~ both sides, both kinds. Read widely, do your own field research, which means taking them, both kinds. Don’t let media think for you, not higher ed media, not the Grey Lady, not WSJ or Forbes.
