Listen to Dr. Lee Graham talk about MOOCS and how they are impacting education.

Thanks to Dr. Lee Graham and Colin Osterhout for being the first guests on the show to talk about the #diffimooc (see Dr. Graham's article “#Diffimooc launches next week.”)

I really wanted to understand what it is like to run a MOOC (Massively Open Online Course) and also what it is like to be a student (Colin) who is also a co-teacher – something unique to MOOCs. How can you have a massively open online course that is free and paid? What does it look like?
