Online Courses: Cartoons

Students OnLine Courses

U.S. schools, K-12 through higher education, are in the midst of another reform wave. From states mandating online courses as a requirement for high school graduation to university-driven Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), hyperbole-filled Kool-Aid mixed with stark fear fuel reform rhetoric about the impending “revolution” in teaching and learning. I offer my monthly feature* of how some cartoonists poke and tear at the rhetoric and realities of online courses.  Enjoy!

  3. Nice. I’ll be posting an Asimov story later this week. It’s interesting to reflect on ways Asimov’s predictions were correct and ways the predictions were incorrect :). I don’t think he considered adult education.

      The Asimov story should shake loose some comments, Janet. Thanks for reminding me of his prediction for schooling in the 22nd century.
