Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)

USA Today featured an article on the “grand experiment in higher education known as Massive Open Online Courses –MOOCs, for short.  Learners of all ages around the world are flocking to them.  Top universities are clamoring to participate.  And MOOCs already have attracted the interest of some employers, paving the way for a potential revenue source.  All in less than a year.”

The article further reported, “In a new report, Moody’s Investor Service calls MOOCs a ‘pivotal development’ that has the potential to revolutionize higher education.  Questions remain whether these online courses can be profitable and whether traditional colleges will award credit for them.  But if successful, MOOCs could lead to lower costs for families and access to higher-quality instruction for anyone in the world who has Internet access.”
