Blog | MOOC Research

Daniel Tan's insight:

The dramatic increase in online education, particularly Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), presents researchers, academics, administrators, learners, and policy makers with a range of questions as to the effectiveness of this format of teaching and learning.

The proliferation of MOOCs in higher education requires a concerted and urgent research agenda.


The MOOC Research Initiative (MRI) will fill this research gap by evaluating MOOCs and how they impact teaching, learning, and education in general.
