The Future of my Sad Story (?)• 2005 - Sakai completes and is installed at 20universities :)• 2006 - I take a few months, reinvent ClipBoard andintegrate it into Sakai so people can *finally* truly useit• 2007 - Hundreds of people try my idea and it turnsout it was a bad idea - so I invent something else…• Moral: I have been waiting 10 years, and changedthree jobs to find a framework to deploy my idea sopeople could use it. Turns out the only way it wasgoing to happen was to help build it myself.2004
February 2007 - I quit Sakai in anger before I am ﬁred in anger

Be an Introductory Course• We need low-stakes "freshman" courses in Coursera• How to behave• How to use the software• How to write• Figure out technical issues• How to learn from others and help others learn....
Be an Open Learning Community• Open Source works well when there is a "Benevolent Dictator"• There needs to be real and enforced rules - but as few as possible• Those in power must not hide behind their power and must sharetheir power with those who show the right behavior• Must make valued behaviors "infectious" / "ampliﬁed"
Teach the Teachers• I dont beleive that all students in the world should consider me theirteacher in this space• I wrote a "book"- I want others to adopt it and re-mix it• Related to making a "learning community"
Community TeachingAssistants• Volunteer students from prior sessions• Culture forms very rapidly• Questions answered quicklyMauro - ItalyMazen - EgyptMegan - UK Susan - PA Karen - NCSue - CA

A Few Predictions• Online "continuation" Masters degrees have a limited lifetime• For-proﬁt undergraduate online programs will become very niche• Residential schools must leverage being together - do more• Remedial / preparation / just in time / continuing ed / professionaldevelopment - wil be free an high quality• Truly democratizing education will happen - but require re-commitment to open educatonal resources and remixable resources
