  • Siemens, “the content is the catalyst to interact, catalyst for connections.”“Long trailing social interactions...”Big head and long tail of higher ed is this widening the head?“A networked course doesn’t have a center. Distributed social network.”“Moodle is too centralized….Currently using Grasshopper, rss aggregation tools, bookmarks, blog posts, daily newsletter that is archived.”

    3. 3. The New MOOCsThe new cohort of MOOCs are distinct from theoriginal MOOCs in that they are “open,” thus far,in only one respect: they are open enrollment.The new MOOCs have not yet openly licensedtheir courses. As MOOCs continue to developcourse content and experiment with variousbusiness models, we think it’s crucial that theyconsider adopting open licenses as a default ontheir digital education offerings. In general, thevalue proposition can be enhanced for the newMOOCs and their users if the MOOCs openlylicense their courses.
