My name is Rolin Moe, and I am the Director of Educational Technology & Media and an Assistant Professor at Seattle Pacific University.  Why do I write about MOOCs? My dissertation research focused on MOOCs, which I framed as a sociocultural phenomenon of free and ubiquitous online learning/education.  I am interested in how learning occurs in these environments, the theory and pedagogy behind learning endeavors, how such theory interacts with the other theories and systems associated with MOOCs (economic, social, technological, class, etc.), and whether the intended learning theories are those utilized by the student members.  My specific focus is on the role of expert/instructor/educator in these spaces, and how modern learning theory and contemporary cultural pressures are shaping both the systems and the teachers.
