My First MOOC: E-learning and Digital Cultures (via Coursera)

Via Coursera, I’m taking my first MOOC (Massive Open Online Course): “E-learning & Digital Cultures.” (Yup, right up my #38Write alley….)

Thus far, we’ve been watching videos & reading articles about the extremist views of e-learning. While there’s a good bit of interesting stuff going on, I don’t have a lot of time to share.

Instead, I offer a brief summary of the utopian and dystopian views that dominate e-learning debates (pick one):

A) E-learning is THE answer to everything. It will save humankind!

B) E-learning is the devil in disguise! It will be the downfall of humankind!

Stay tuned for answer!
