An interesting article about open content, MOOCs and respective promoters – http://mobile.informationweek.com/80269/show/f8bbedb7380fac521eef6e988105d328/?

“It’s very important for people to realize the ‘open’ in MOOCs is open enrollment – it’s nothing about the content at all. It just means anybody can take that course. Most MOOCs use proprietary content. They use proprietary textbooks or proprietary lecture notes. There’s nothing mandated about open access.”
