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.

Does the MOOC spell the end for universities? | OUPblog

Does the MOOC spell the end for universities? | OUPblog | Opening up education | Scoop.it
The seemingly unassailable rise of the MOOC – the Massive Open On-Line Course – has many universities worried.
