My blog searching is not finding much new so far this year but this past from recently introduces the idea of "the 800 pound gorillas of US research universities (e.g.Harvard, MIT, Stanford and UC Berkeley)."
Then it looks at Futurelearn without any 800 pound gorillas and suggests the OU might be one, or at least part of a disruption.
Lloyd Armstrong is University Professor and Provost Emeritus at the University of Southern California.
I do notice that the MOOC based in the USA is likely to include universities from outside the USA. But so far Futurelearn is very UK.
More later. Getting ready for the Wild Show on Phonic FM in Exeter 10 -12. Mostly a music show but guests welcome, maybe comparing online courses and Soundcloud.
