  1. What questions or comments would you have for Keith and Jonathan?

  2. Manuel Leon Urrutia says:

    Hi Keith and Jonathan, all points you both make look solid to me, but I have the feeling that your disciplines influence your attitudes towards the advent of MOOCs in universities. Honestly, although this one was really interesting, I would have liked to see a debate between professors from a similar field. My question is: what do your faculty colleagues say? Do they have a vision similar to yours? Do you think MOOCs in science and technology have more potential to succeed than in humanities or social sciences?
