Will MOOC's Take Down Branch Campuses? We Don’t Think So - WorldWise - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Will MOOC's Take Down Branch Campuses? We Don’t Think So - WorldWise - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Cross Border Higher Education | Scoop.it

In a recent blog on University World News, Rahul Choudaha argues that MOOC’s (massive open online courses) could lead to the decline of international branch campuses.

Massive open online courses (MOOCs) – time for takeoff? « Hedda – Higher Education Development Association | Cross Border Higher Education | Scoop.it

In the last two years, a number of various MOOC platforms have been introduced and received a significant amount of attention in higher education news outlets.
