The MOOC Ecoosystem

14,910 views

Published on

The MOOC ecosystem is presented as a series of magnitudes akin to Ray Eames's 1977 'Powers of Ten' video, beginning from the original MOOC of 2000 people, through to a MOOC world of 2 billion people, and back down to the synapse at 0.00002 people. The talk looks at the interactions between the levels and challeges the 'educationist' presumptions of reduction and representation (pace Quine).
