Speculative Diction: MOOCs, access, & privileged assumptions [June 19 2013]

In this blog post I compare the rhetoric of accessibility that occurs in arguments for MOOCs, to the kinds of examples chosen to represent this – in the context of an existing literature on higher education accessibility.

Shortly after this was published, I attended Worldviews 2013 and was a member of a panel that discussed “Who are the MOOC users?” On the panel I made a number of the same points that you’ll find in this blog post. I wrote a follow-up post available here.
