MOOC Commentary (YMMV)

MIT cuts ties with Walter Lewin after online harassment probe

The MOOCs first biggest truly shameful occurrence that I know of. This was Mr. Wizard for generations. What a black eye.

How many female students, postdocs, colleagues careers were affected? I know what I witnessed. There needs to be a built-in way to address this in the bud.

If we are adults, we all know that we have to separate science/art from the creators (Don’t trust anyone over 30!) but this was way too far past that line even for me, who has been forced to make peace with that concept for a looooong time. It was the initial alumnus comments that made me ill, basically “so what?” Even when harassment is 100% documented in writing women STILL don’t get support. So now what?

Mooc on Moocs one take on how to design a MOOC well

moocmooc is often highly critical of the MOOC movement
