Let Them Eat MOOCs - Gianpiero Petriglieri - Harvard Business Review - 3 views

  •  
    Even the fabled personalization that digital learning affords is really a form of mass customization. There is no personal relationship. It is a market of knowledge where no one is known and care is limited to the provision of choices.
    Whether its crusaders are venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, academics, or students, the colonizer is a transactional view of education, centered on knowledge as a commodity, which displaces a relational view of education, centered on developing through relationships. This in turn becomes, like all precious resources of colonial territories, no longer a common good but a leisurely privilege.

  •  
    A group of European leaders in TEL, led by Nicolas Balacheff, is
    putting together an open access Thesaurus and Dictionary of TEL, in
    multiple languages, as a service to the community. Nicolas is looking
    for further entries to be written on e.g.: Pervasive Learning,
    Augmented Reality Learning, Handheld Learning, Blended Learning and
    would be happy to have offers of further topics that are not in the
    list. A Thesaurus entry is short (one page) in a structured format,
    and you will be credited as editor of that entry.
