I spent this summer at Microsoft Research New England as a PhD Intern working on a project with the most boring title ever. “The Student as End User in the MOOC Ecology”. Here is a link if you are interested in seeing my talk on the topic (also took place at Microsoft Research):
I am in the process of doing a final revision of my paper before I start submitting it. Currently I’m debating how much I need to go into what the Big 3 MOOC companies are saying . In the paper I speak about more than Daphne Koller’s TED Talk, and spend more time talking about imperialism as the accumulation of capital… but, as with the final draft of everything, I’m trying to figure out what is adding enough to keep and what is taking away from the overall point and purpose of the paper.
