The key is to engender a love of learning – and enable access to all.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, August 22, 2013 7:05 AM

I'm into the second week of my second MOOC with Coursera, studying Social Psychology (or in other words....understanding people and behaviours). I would advocate this style of learning for anyone who hasn't tried it yet - it's a great way to expand your knowledge into topics that might otherwise be difficult (or expensive) to access. This method of learning is particularly suited to continuos professional development. I'm less convinced that MOOCs would or could replace full or part-time degree courses.
