Association of Medical Educators of Europe (AMEE) E-Learning Symposium, September 6th to 9th, Glasgow, Scotland
The MOOC ecosystem is presented as a series of magnitudes akin to Ray Eames's 1977 'Powers of Ten' video, beginning from the original MOOC of 2000 people, through to a MOOC world of 2 billion people, and back down to the synapse at 0.00002 people. The talk looks at the interactions between the levels and challeges the 'educationist' presumptions of reduction and representation (pace Quine).
