One area where faculty adoption is almost universal is in the use of video for classes. More than 80 percent of survey respondents tapped into online sites such as YouTube for video to use in their teaching.
Berry supports the idea of MOOCs for professional development in theory because he’d like to see teachers be able to choose and direct their own learning. But he thinks success hinges on skilled virtual facilitators who both know the subject matter and how to foster high quality discussion and communication online in order to make it work well.
Interesting move - I would watch this one closely. MOOCs seem better than large lecturs and in Coursera are much better designed. Not sure I would want to be taught by a teachers whose only credentials were from Coursera, but I can see other higher education areas being better served by MOOCs.
