Estaremos fornecendo informações demais sobre nós mesmos de forma inconsciente, sem pensar nas consequências mais profundas? Seu padrão de compras e seus registros de condução podem informar à sua seguradora que você é um consumidor alimentar inconsequente e aumentar seu prêmio. Seu futuro possível empregador também pode preventivamente lhe negar a vaga se considerar que você tem padrões de comportamento que não se coadunam com a imagem da empresa.

MOOC development continues to pick up speed... around the world - ICEF Monitor - Market intelligence for international student recruitment

MOOC development continues to pick up speed... around the world - ICEF Monitor - Market intelligence for international student recruitment | EduTech - technology | Scoop.it

The topic of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) has been extensively covered in various media both great and small, however it’s a technology – indeed an entire educational and political landscape – that is constantly evolving.

In response to this phenomenon, ICEF Monitor opens a two-part article on the current state of MOOCs. The first instalment will get you caught up on latest MOOC rumblings in the US and review the MOOC trend as a whole, and the second part look at developments in MOOCs internationally, with a focus on countries where the technology is beginning to flourish.
