Guest Commentary: Online Education

Guest Commentary: Online Education | Learning with MOOCs | Scoop.it

There is, however, a serious problem currently keeping online education from reaching its full potential -- low retention rates. About 90 percent of enrollees in “MOOCS” -- short for “Massive Open Online Courses,” which have unlimited registration and are the most popular online education product -- drop out within two weeks. 


The key to solving this problem? Making MOOCs more interactive. While MOOCs can never perfectly replicate the in-person back-and-forth of traditional brick-and-mortar schools, they can capitalize on modern technologies that empower students to more intimately engage with the material, their instructors, and their peers.
