So How Are Universities Earning From MOOCs ? | Massive Open Online Courses.com, Online Courses, University Education

So How Are Universities Earning From MOOCs ? | Massive Open Online Courses.com, Online Courses, University Education | Opening up education | Scoop.it
How Universities Are Earning From MOOCs   Until recently one of the biggest problems facing universities wishing to offer MOOCs has been the lack of an obvious revenue stream. MOOCs are free for students to join, but cost the universities an average of $50,000 including both set-up and running costs. It is known that there are 1.4 billion Internet users aged between 15 and 54 that cannot afford the costs of a university education. They would greatly benefit from the opportunity to study online for free, but the problem for universities has been finding a clear business model that will make MOOCs sustainable in the long-term. The sceptics predicted that this lack of a clear pricing strategy meant that MOOCs would never be profitable, and over time would fade away. What in fact seems to be happening is that rather than scaling back on MOOCs universities across the world are embracing the MOOC concept and increasing both the number, and the variety of MOOCs that they offer.

Group urges checks on online learning at MIT - The Tech

Concerned about the pace of change brought about by online learning, an Institute subcommittee is now preparing to recommend a “face-time” degree requirement, strong oversight of on-campus MITx experiments, and a “conservative initial approach” to awarding credit for edX classes.

Wilfred Rubens's curator insight, April 6, 5:47 AM

EdX als platform voor het voortgezet onderwijs om MOOCs mee aan te bieden. Je zou er het onderwijs aantrekkelijker mee kunnen maken, meent edX president Anant Agarwal. Door het vervangen van lange lezingen door korte video's en interactieve oefeningen. Aantrekkelijk onderwijs is uiteraard meer dan dat. Volgens mij vooral interessant voor samenwerkingsverbanden van scholen. Om content vervolgens te combineren met andere onderwijsvormen.

Kennisland : 6 OER myths busted

Kennisland : 6 OER myths busted | Opening up education | Scoop.it
6 OER myths busted - Over the last couple of months I have been talking a lot with people about Open Educational Resources (OER). Trying to help teachers to deal with copyright law in the production of their own material and trying to help them license it in a way that suits their intentions. In these conversations with educators the same issues, myths and questions seem to come up naturally, and they cloud the bigger discussion at hand. I have also been thinking about policy recommendations for the EU within the Creative Commons Open Education policy project.
Robert Schuwer's insight:

In 2009, together with my collegue Darco Jansen I have formulated 7 myths on OER (in Dutch). One myth is shared: about the business models. See http://cop.rdmc.ou.nl/openmethodes/Artikelen/MythesOER.pdf
