Stephen Downes writes in his newsletter:

«Graham Attwell summarizes the debate around MOOCs taking place in academic right now. “I don’t agree with Nellie Deutsch’s assertion that the attitude the elite universities are choosing to take is ‘if you can’t join them, break them’,” he writes. “Instead I think they are trying to take what is clearly a successful and ground breaking innovation and trying to mold it to fit their own pedagogic and business models.” True.»
