During this talk, I am not speaking for theUniversity of Michigan, I am not speaking forBlackboard, Inc., I am not speaking for the IMSGlobal Learning Consortium, I am not Speakingfor the Apereo Foundation, and I am notspeaking for Coursera.Frankly, no matter who pays me or pays mytravel, the only one I speak for is myself and mygoal is to improve teaching and learningthrough technology regardless of whattechnology those teachers and students chooseto use.
We are at the very beginning!No one has *any* idea where thisis going!Anyone who makes a "groundtruth" claim about MOOCs iswrong!

edX API Roadmap*• IMS Learning Tools Interoperability 1.1 to plug in external tools likeautograders or content systems from externally hosted systems• In-browser widget using XBlock and in browser provisioned APIs -already released open source• Full edX will be released open source (Affero GPL) - June 1, 2013* I do not work for edX
Next Generation LMS Systems• Scalability and dynamic provisioning is the key• Instead of one server(or servers) per campus we have one server percourse• This is an $100 Million dollar rewrite from scratch - and a life/deathrace• Coursera is 30 engineers and edX is 20 Engineers
Interesting Questions...• What is wrong with this picture?• How will this change higher education?• How will teaching change? Invert the classroom?• How will students lives really change? Remedial education?
