#digped Storify Pt. 1: We Interrupt This Broadcast . . .

 Published on August 8, 2012 /  Written by /  0
In his article, “Broadcast Education: A Response to Coursera,” Sean asks us to consider, “If online education has made so much progress, why isn’t it more obvious? Why are the good folks at Coursera (who are actually just now catching up to those of us who’ve been doing this for a decade) getting all the attention, while also not putting the best face of online education forward?” He ends the piece with a call for pedagogues “to innovate, to experiment, to play and be played with,” and cautions against oversimplification of online learning and MOOCs, of both the forms they take and the issues at stake when we are debating their merits and demerits. In an effort to engage some of the more productive discursive strands weaving in and out of the recent media “MOOCopalypse”, we decided to focus last week’s #digped discussion on the broader question of broadcast learning, which is the model (as Sean points out, sometimes erroneously) most frequently associated with MOOCs and other, more traditional (did I just write that?) online courses.
