Countries that currently attract foreign students to their shores will need to brace for the impact on their local economies, as an ever-increasing proportion of students choose to gain an international education without leaving their home country. Employers will consider certificates of completion meaningless, while maintaining a reserved suspicion over assessment scores. MOOCs get a bad rap.
