Fiona Harvey's curator insight, October 12, 2013 2:02 PM

Really nice report from the Wall Street Journal on how MOOCs have progressed along with some obvious comments, 'studying online is an isolating experience' (could argue here that a cMOOC is deliberately the opposite of that, although then other problems emerge).  

 

Worth a read for update on whats been happening over the last year.
