Regarding Recommendation 17: “The SAPTF recommends that Queen’s does not become involved in MOOCs until and unless there is greater support for online learning,” please note that my informal “Forsdyke Evolution Academy” MOOC, which is modelled on Salman Khan’s famous “Khan Academy,” has been up and running since 2011. There are now 4 basic course, each consisting of between 12 and 18 YouTube videos. These are supplemented by a growing series of PowerPoint Lectures and accompanying web-pages that emphasize both historical and modern aspects (see: http://post.queensu.ca/~forsdyke/videolectures.htm ).
