These are just snapshots, or “sound bytes,” but they give a bit of an idea of the diversity of thought among professors teaching a variety of free online university courses (MOOCs–Massive Open Online Courses). Will similar courses be the precursors to free post-secondary for-credit classes? Might such classes result in (or at least lead to) free college education for anyone interested? Will professors be paid based on the popularity of their free online teaching–how well-attended, how well commercialized, etc.?
My questions always seem to start with the content, but then go quickly beyond the actual text and context…
