How MOOCs Could Meet the Challenge of Providing a Global Education

As talked about in Teaching Naked the MOOCs phenomena seems to be taking hold. The article is a just published and ongoing look in to MOOCs. Click the link and check out the article on the MIT Technology Review ! Due to copyright concerns I will not post any text from the article (and they wanted $79.00 to post an excerpt) .

  1. 160,000 students, wow! I can’t imagine how Peter and his colleague can monitor that. But it seems that they’re doing it well. What I like about his online class are the videos’ informality (hand written questions), the submission deadlines ( got to be more organized and take the lessons seriously) and statements of accomplishment after so many hours of work. I wonder if the certificates are recognized by universities/colleges for credit purposes and if they can be used for job search.

    Great video, Philip!

    • I agree Leyvi, and so pertinent to our practises ! I was really astonished at the amount of background information that they are gathering about online learning ! Incredible ! Thanks as always for checking in….
