Blended learning is gaining the attention of colleges around the world as they begin to strategize ways to compete with massive open online courses (MOOCs) and deliver meaningful learning experiences over the web. There is some confusion over the differences between online learning, MOOCs and blended learning. Professor Mike Keppell of Charles Sturt University clarifies blended learning in this presentation
"Daniel, J. (2012) Making sense of MOOCs: Musings in a maze of myth, paradox and possibility Seoul: Korean National Open University
This is the most thorough, comprehensive and balanced overview and analysis of MOOCs that I have read. This is not surprising since Sir John Daniel has had a long and distinguished career in open and distance learning, including being President of the Commonwealth of Learning and Vice-Chancellor of the UK Open University. He is currently a visiting research fellow at the Korean National Open University and an Education Master at DeTao Masters Academy, China. He thus knows of what he speaks."
It’s hard to follow higher education news these days without seeing a reference to MOOCs.

Proponents praise them for their potential to change education, while critics chalk them up as more hype than hope.
