Engaging communities of learners in massively open online courses to use their knowledge—and numbers—for good.
elbert chu's insight:
Here's a way to reframe the MOOC debate around how to generate value outside of people trying to get degrees with one question: How can we engage the talented, passionate, and often educationally disenfranchised students in MOOCs to help solve real-world problems? Three reasons why MOOCs could spark fixes for the world's problems:
+ Students interact with peers learn better (assuming MOOCs have capacity for social)
+ Outsiders find solutions for problems from an unexpected perspective
+ People learn best when studies are linked closely to application
Project applying these ideas:
+ Stanford's Venture Lab
+ Coursolve (author, Nabeel Gillani is co-founder)
