Competency-Based Education Is Not the “New MOOC”

Competency-Based Education Is Not the “New MOOC” | TRENDS IN HIGHER EDUCATION | Scoop.it

As I have written elsewhere,1 we have entered something I call the MOOC 3.0 era, where the original, true MOOC form (single course, free, no admission requirements, no credit, and large enrollments) has disaggregated and hybridized into different forms: flipped, wrapped, small, private, distributed, etc. We now know that MOOCs attract highly educated individuals from around the globe who are expanding their already advanced knowledge for professional advancement or personal enrichment. Few complete the classes they begin, and few are earning academic credit for their efforts. By now, extreme hype has given way to a more nuanced reality.
