On Education Technology Roundup: MOOCS

Quite apart from the question of how effective on-line learning is, I'm concerned about the bigger picture. Human beings need social interaction. For brainy people, school is probably the most comfortable social environment they'll ever experience; you'll notice many brainy people never leave school at all if they can help it! I think it would be a shame to lose that community and disperse everyone to sitting alone at their computer.

Upside down world... literary analysis with just one correct answer, and math with whatever answer you want, so long as you're willing to write/discuss your feelings about it.
