Globe & Mail article: There's No Online Substitute for a Real University Classroom

I've been thinking and blogging a lot about MOOCs lately. Here's the reluctant POV:


Ever read the short story "The Fun They Had" by Isaac Asimov? This article made me think about some of the issues in the story and the subsequent discussions I've had with students on whether or not they'd prefer online or face-to-face learning. 

I wonder where teaching will take place in 20 years time. I think it will depend if schools are seen as areas for learning or for socialization.
