MOOCs Book Reader Reactions

“Currently reading. Just published about a month ago, this amazing book has 64 contributors from 13 countries who wrote 32 chapters on how MOOCs are revolutionizing global education overall. Wow! I highly recommend to anyone who is passionate about teaching or learning. Thank you Ray Schroeder (for recommending it).”

p.s. “And thank you so much for publishing the book. It is truly amazing and will further all of our efforts!”

“Your MOOC books are great. I have learned so much from you in the last few days. I like the way you four describe the arc of the research, the Vegas event, and the collaboration. I hadn't realized David Wiley had become radicalized but I was nodding in agreement throughout his chapter. You picked a great bunch of contributors.”

Per Dr. Rovy Branon, Vice Provost of Educational Extension at the University of Washington,

“MOOC (books) over Seattle! Got my two signed copies this morning. Thanks Curt Bonk! These are very timely given some of our current work!”

“Started browsing the MOOC volume. Impressive line-up of authors. Lots of interesting perspectives. I'm going to enjoy it.”
