Structuring online learning collectivities

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeConference contributionScientificpeer-review

Abstract

What appeared to be a technological breakthrough in education is now irrevocably changing the subject itself. The initial goal of equality in education as introduced by Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) has been extended beyond the rise in the number of learners to the actual consideration of them as individuals of equal intelligence who are aware of this fact and therefore, emancipated from the traditional forms of education by instruction. The new subject these courses refer to is not simply accumulating knowledge; it is creating it. And by doing so, it is creating the intellectual tools it will be using in the future not just in the educational context but in the real world problem posing and solving.
