Mr. Jefferson’s MOOC.

Peter Onuf’s thoughts on MOOCs are worth your time. Because confirmation bias is my favorite kind of bias, two points in the interview stand out for me: first, producing a reasonably high-quality MOOC costs a ton of money, so much so that even at UVA and with the help of Coursera, Peter’s team truncated his course because of the expense; and second, that Peter, despite coming out of the experience relatively sanguine about MOOCs, thinks such courses aren’t necessarily well suited to the humanities.
