edx  (Robert Lue harvard) claims mooc is just the beginning -see video below minute 6 to 54.45

see minute 14.00 of this video -eg it doesn't have to be massive but might link in various opposing segments in advancing a converging field; open can be one segment of experience but course might be privately adapted for specific segments; doesnt not have to be a course (historically predicated structures based on how many bodies can you fit in a room for how long)


16.56 edx sees OLA as the core module -Online Learning Activities - courses become sequences of OLAs - many faculty members are not doing whole courses but small sequence of OLA- what we are trying to od is modularity can you design an Ola with a front end and an back end that enables it to thread very effectively


29.54 -a revolution in collaboration - with colleges at all stages of education, with publishers , with cities eg Bostonx  Harvard & MIT Partner with the City of Boston to Offer Online Courses & Job Training to All Residents , with media ,,, search bostonX

The time is ripe for reconsidering the "Massive" impact of "Online" and "Open" learning. Join us September 26-27, 2013! John Seely Brown and other innovators will Reclaim Open Learning at Calit2, University of California, Irvine. This event is the culmination of the Reclaim Open Learning Innovation Challenge, an effort to surface individuals and organizations who are piloting projects to transform higher education in a direction that is connected and creative, open in content and access, participatory, and that takes advantage of what we have learned from the MOOC movement (including forms, platforms, practices) but is not beholden to the narrow mainstream MOOC format.
