Review: Moocs: Design, Use and Business Models

Moocs: Design, Use and Business Models Moocs: Design, Use and Business Models by Jean-Charles Pomerol
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It was not a bad book, but some of the factual errors (or perhaps interpretations of what was reported in the book were not in accordance with my own readings on MOOCing). That said, the book focuses a lot on xMOOCs (not a big surprise, most books seem to be doing this), and the book is focused on higher education administration rather than having instructors and instructional designers in mind as the primary reading audience. There are some interesting tidbits (looking at some European MOOCs, specifically French, for example), but overall I've read better books on MOOCs. I did find it surprising that there were only about 30 references in the bibliography (perhaps this has to do more with the intended audience than anything else).
