The future of MOOCs
NOVEMBER 25, 2012
Sure, the pedagogy may not be perfect, but the alternative is much worse. There’s no point rehashing the same lectures when the world’s best authorities have already recorded them and offered them to the world as OERs. Over time, content providers will supplement their core offerings with live webinars, interactive exercises, discussion forums, wikis, social networks etc. Content providers will wag the long tail. MOOCs get a bad rap.
