Very few people who enroll in MOOCs (massive open online courses) tell us about the experience. I just took one and learned these lessons:
Lesson One: Professors need to start phasing out in-class lecturing now.
Lesson Two: For students taking a MOOC, self-motivation and self-discipline are even more important.
Lesson Three: MOOC students ought to think more carefully about what courses to take, and what they want to get out of them.
Lesson Four: Policymakers should stop subsidizing universities and start subsidizing education.
