Is online learning really cracking open the public post-secondary system? | TRENDS IN HIGHER EDUCATION |

Key in-depth article examining impact MOOCs. I think that it goes beyond summer madness, and that we're at the beginning of a major long-term disruption of education in general. 


I suspect that I’m not the only one who has been ‘disengaged’ from the online world of online learning for the past few weeks, in my case for minor medical reasons, and in your case I hope enjoying sun, sand and socializing. So in this post I’m going to pull together a number of recent publications in the blogosphere which taken together, suggest that there are deep rumblings in North America’s public post-secondary education systems, if not outright panic in the streets. Or it may just be summer madness and too much heat. I’ll leave you to judge
