Clay Shirky on the Future of Education

Here is a nice long essay by Clay Shirky on the challenge the MOOC (Massively Open Online Courses) present to the structure of our current universities. I have been taking occasional courses on Udacity and Coursera, and I find these course really good.

Clay Shirky is a media professor at NYU and he writes a lot of good stuff on the possible consequences of technology.
