Gordian Knot

MOOCs and Universities are tricky.  On one hand you have practicality, on another you have reputation.  There are a lot of opinions out there.  I do not pretend to know a lot but I try to read as much as I can.

Stephen Downes’ website (http://www.downes.ca) is quite a resource.  You can read his blog or subscribe to his daily online learning e-mail newsletter if this is something that piques your interest

In a country with a developing economy such as the Philippines, Internet bandwidth’s a real issue.  That said, the abundance of mobile phones poses a “different” opportunity.  To paraphrase the book “The Spirituality of Imperfection”, don’t take MOOCs verbatim but seek out their intent.

There’s much to ruminate on.
