  27. 27. What does Massive Mean?
  28. 28. 01:27 / 2:37
  29. 29. Getting to Massive Size...• Online education is not the "enemy" of residential institutions• Social duty to "teach the world" - cannot build buildings fast enough• Accept that "at a distance" is not the same as face to face• Start as an experiment - iterate• At 100,000+ students - cannot compensate in office hours or questions after class - must think through materials
  30. 30. Coursera Tools Enable Scale• Short chunked video lectures with embedded interactive activities to test knowledge• Wide range of auto-graded assessments including peer grading of writing• Discussion groups - peer help• Authoring feels to me like writing a video-enhanced interactive book with deeply integrated assessment and community building and collaboration tools
  31. 31. Internet History, Technology, and Security• Highly visual - many videos of history makers• Critical thinking - humanities / social science• I want to use it as a platform to experiment
  32. 32. Summary• It is early days but things are off and running• It is not at all clear how this will shake out or what platform will win• It is a bad time to be on the sidelines...• It is a great time to be a teacher who wants to play in the future https://www.coursera.org/course/insidetheinternet
