The future of MOOCs

E-Learning Provocateur

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. Over time, content providers will supplement their core offerings with live webinars, interactive exercises, discussion forums, wikis, social networks etc. Offshoring will become the rule, not the exception. MOOCs get a bad rap.
