The future of MOOCs
NOVEMBER 25, 2012
Involving little more than knowledge transmission and perhaps a quiz at the end, the xMOOC is widely seen as replicating old-fashioned lectures and exams. 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. Offshoring will become the rule, not the exception. MOOCs get a bad rap.
