The world of Internet makes people closer. In many aspects we share the same interests and concerns in some cases contexts are much different, but no doubt it’s a chance to learn from each other.

MOOCs in September 2013

I’ve enrolled in 3 MOOCs this month:

I have created in this MOOC space 3 new webpages dedicated to each of them, therefore I’ll devote my time to update these webpages during this month.

«Regardless of your personal opinion on the value of these Massive Open Online Courses, the current reality for many low income, and underserved student populations in the US, and globally is that these free open courses from some of the world’s leading experts is a partial win of the “Educational Access Lottery”. »

An interesting article about open content, MOOCs and respective promoters –

“It’s very important for people to realize the ‘open’ in MOOCs is open enrollment – it’s nothing about the content at all. It just means anybody can take that course. Most MOOCs use proprietary content. They use proprietary textbooks or proprietary lecture notes. There’s nothing mandated about open access.”
