re: MOOCs: Valuable Innovation Or Grand Diversion?
I'm not sure why Professor Stokes quoted here so opposed to throwing spaghetti against the wall. Spaghetti throwing has brought us a lot of disruption technology and business models -- entrepreneurs see a problem, start a company to deal with it, find out they're completely wrong, so they keep trying new things til something works. It seems impossible to me that remote learning (and testing) won't be part of how we get higher ed costs under control. Why is an AP class delivered in high school and vetted by an exam worthy of college credit, but an online course would not?
