Sure, the pedagogy may not be perfect, but the alternative is much worse. There’s no point rehashing the same lectures when the world’s best authorities have already recorded them and offered them to the world as OERs. The pedagogy of MOOCs will be enriched. Over time, content providers will supplement their core offerings with live webinars, interactive exercises, discussion forums, wikis, social networks etc. Content providers will wag the long tail.
