3 Thoughts on "Scholarly Kitchen Podcast: If It Isn't Disruption, What Is It?"

good analysis. Disruption thrives when a new mode allows the under-served to be served (albeit with a lower quality service at first). So, whatever the outcome, MOOCs appear to threaten otherwise insulated institutions by offering to serve underserved students. What is the under-served audience of academic literature and would serving them end up creating a model that might have traction and shift the ecosystem over time?

A most interesting discussion. I am deducing that there really is not disruption as is being claimed by some. I tend to believe that when one talks disruption in a business environment that what one is doing is selling an idea in the quest for funding!
