Langsam füllt sich das (noch virtuelle) Regal mit der MOOC-Literatur. 21 Essays auf 250 Seiten umfasst dieser Band. Vielleicht hat die Einführung von Charles Lowe, “Building on the Tradition of CCK08”, ja programmatischen Charakter. In jedem Fall steht das Buch auch unter einer CC-Lizenz zum Download im Netz.
“Unlike accounts in the mainstream media and educational press, Invasion of the MOOCs is not written from the perspective of removed administrators, would-be education entrepreneurs/venture capitalists, or political pundits. Rather, this collection of essays comes from faculty who developed and taught MOOCs in 2012 and 2013, students who participated in those MOOCs, and academics and observers who have first hand experience with MOOCs and higher education. These twenty-one essays reflect the complexity of the very definition of what is (and what might in the near future be) a “MOOC,” along with perspectives and opinions that move far beyond the polarizing debate about MOOCs that has occupied the media in previous accounts. Toward that end, Invasion of the MOOCs reflects a wide variety of impressions about MOOCs from the most recent past and projects possibilities about MOOCs for the not so distant future.”
