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. 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. Offshoring will become the rule, not the exception. MOOCs get a bad rap.
