MOOC 2.0: Attend Georgia Tech without moving to Atlanta

MOOC 2.0: Attend Georgia Tech without moving to Atlanta | Opening up education | Scoop.it
Georgia Tech was the first elite university to offer an online degree program and now it’s putting together its first class.
Robert Schuwer's insight:

Scooped it because it mentions one specific reason for students to come to US: get a visum. So competition is not on who attracts the best students (competition on attractiveness of program) but which country is most attractive (where program is secondary)?

Robert Schuwer's insight:

I couldn't agree more with the last paragrapgh of this blogpost. Start reasoning from e.g. goals institutions have on raising quality of education or being more efficient or offering more personalized ways of education and think about how and whichs forms of open and online education could help to achieve these goals next to other activities.

Why Free Is Not the Future of Digital Content in Education | WIRED | Opening up education | Scoop.it
courosa/Flickr As Chief Content Officer of a learning company, people frequently ask me: “Won’t all of your content eventually be free? After all, when technology enters the market, free is right behind it.” Then they’ll point to something like the music industry, where annual revenues have declined more than $20 billion from their peak over a…
Robert Schuwer's insight:

Interesting analysis. Some added value will not offered for free. The question is if this added value is in the content or the services around the content.

Institutional MOOC strategies in Europe - EADTU - European Association of Distance Teaching Universities

Institutional MOOC strategies in Europe - EADTU - European Association of Distance Teaching Universities | Opening up education | Scoop.it
Home, MOOCs
Robert Schuwer's insight:

This EADTU report presents and analyses the results of a survey conducted by the HOME project between October and December 2014. It presents data on the perception and objectives of European higher education institutions on MOOCs and the main drivers behind the MOOC movement. In addition, the report makes a comparison with similar studies conducted in the United States in 2013 and 2014. The report made clear that involvement in Europe is still increasing, but also that arguments to get involved differ from those in the US.
