Course-Management Companies Challenge MOOC Providers

Course-Management Companies Challenge MOOC Providers | CMS | Scoop.it

"Two software companies that sell course-management systems, Blackboard and Instructure, have entered the race to provide free online courses for the masses. On Thursday both companies plan to announce partnerships with universities that will use their software to teach massive open online courses, or MOOC’s. The companies hope to pull in their own college clients to compete with online-education players like Udacity and Coursera."

Online Educational Delivery Models: A Descriptive View (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | CMS | Scoop.it

Although there has been a long history of distance education, the creation of online education occurred just over a decade and a half ago—a relatively short time in academic terms. Early course delivery via the web had started by 1994, soon followed by a more structured approach using the new category of course management systems.1 Since that time, online education has slowly but steadily grown in popularity, to the point that in the fall of 2010, almost one-third of U.S. postsecondary students were taking at least one course online.2 Fast forward to 2012: a new concept called Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) is generating widespread interest in higher education circles. Most significantly, it has opened up strategic discussions in higher education cabinets and boardrooms about online education.
