Yong Zhao is a dynamic, entertaining, and insightful keynote speaker and a thorough, thoughtful researcher. Though most of his work focuses on compulsory education, his insights have broad applicability to higher education. This is evident in this book, which explores the ways in which boundaries and borders limit and inhibit learning and what happens when these are removed. He explores the opportunities of borderless learning and the ability of learners to design their own learning pathways and programs of study. He calls for significant shift in practice. He writes powerfully about the way in which our current systems inhibit and constrain, and he writes passionately about what is possible. There is a lot of materials here about MOOCs and his evaluation of what they are now capable of, especially given the pandemic and their massive growth and expansion.
