NLESETvSXhr (nur ein kleines modell, warum es (nicht nur von ihm) im ohrensessel ausgedachte paneuropäische medien eher schwer haben werden:

stellen wir uns menschen als punkte in einem koordinatensystem vor, die ihre interessen reflektieren.

und nehmen wir an, dass sie egoistisch/rational ganz einfach die medien konsumieren, die ihnen am nächsten kommen (und deren sprache sie verstehen).

für medien bedeutet das, dass sie versuchen müssen, den abstand zwischen sich und möglichst vieler dieser punkte zu minimieren. ihr grundproblem ist also eine mediale lineare regression.

je paneuropäischer das angebot aber sein will, desto grösser wird natürlich die varianz, weil die streuung - also die erfahrungen, geschichten, kulturen, milieus, etc. - unterschiedlicher wird. und je höher aber der durchschnittliche abstand zum paneuropäischen medienangebot wird, desto grösser wird wiederum die wahrscheinlichkeit, dass ein regionales oder nationales medium einfach viel näher liegt und also vorgezogen wird.)

LKeZ5arBDc5 Sebastian Thrun from +Udacity sez: "We learned we can drastically boost learning outcomes by adding a service layer around MOOCs. It has a huge impact on completion rates and learning outcomes."

It's weird that a statistician confuses correlation (people who enjoy our new 'service layer' have a higher completion rate) with causation (they have a higher completion rate because this 'service layer' helps them learning and mastering the certificate) and is completely oblivious to the obvious confounding variable - money.

U1BKwmvMht4 has anyone already discovered the revival of the stockholm syndrome in MOOCs? It seems like the worse the course or the instructor, the more devotional the justifications of some classmates. (which obviously makes sense since some moocs are a huge investment in personal time and energy and it's much better to have a good feeling about the course; nobody wants to waste their time or suspect that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence)
