Please respond directly to Ghanashyam.Sharma@stonybrook. edu------CFP------Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have recently drawn a lot of attention across the world among teachers, scholars, and academic institutions. While MOOC providers, media outlets, and some teachers/scholars have viewed the phenomenon as a positive advancement in higher education, many scholars are worried that MOOCs might ultimately undermine the qualities and values that sustain higher education within and across national borders more significantly than they contribute positively. Teachers and scholars in different contexts and countries need to broaden and deepen the conversation so that the positive potentials are realized while also recognizing the pitfalls of this advancement.As guest editors for the Journal of Global Literacies, Technologies, and Emerging Pedagogies, my colleague Michael Murphy and I are inviting scholars who represent different perspectives, disciplines, countries, and contexts to consider submitting article manuscripts for a special MOOCs-focused issue of the journal. If you would like to contribute to the eclectic collection that we are striving to make this issue, your perspective/experience would add tremendous value to the conversation. Please find attached the CFP, which is also available at http://joglep.com/index. php/sepcial-issue-sThank you for your consideration.Shyam Sharma----------On behalf of JOGLTEPSpecial Issue Editors:Shyam Sharma, Assistant Professor, SUNY Stony BrookMichael Murphy, Assistant Professor, SUNY OswegoDr Prithvi Shrestha

Thanks for sharing this info. MOOCs have indeed been on the spotlight for a while.
It would be interesting to see more views as there are definitely 'for and against' perspectives.
