In which I compare professors to the Joad family…

This is actually the second time that I’ve compared professors to characters from Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath.  In the first post, I didn’t know a darn thing about MOOCs and you can see that in my argument with Stephen Downes in the comments there.  Now I do, and I think the argument still holds water. However, I also think the excellent editing at Chronicle Vitae helped me make the argument better this time.
