MOOCy HEALTH CLUBS: MOOCs are more like health clubs than hospitals, says this report by Bellwether scholar Andrew Kelly. (It was funded by Google but Kelly says they didn't touch the conclusions). Health clubs can make you trimmer but they don't do life-changing surgeries. And kind of like health clubs, they haven't helped everyone equally so far. Overall great overview of MOOC history--and some interesting policy recommendations here including support for thoughtful "hybrid" MOOCs.
