MOOCs: neither the death of the university nor a panacea for learning by Jane Den Hollander

MOOCs: neither the death of the university nor a panacea for learning by Jane Den Hollander | Using Technology to Transform Learning | Scoop.it

"Over the last few months most of us who work in higher education, as well as those who watch and comment on what we do have been fascinated by a singular topic: the MOOC. [...] They are very new, and no-one yet knows what they will mean or what role they will play. But many already believe that Pandora’s box has been opened. [...] For the first time in our existence, some are questioning the university’s purpose and future. [...] Clearly MOOCs are not the panacea, or a replacement, but they do contribute to a worldwide learning community, hungry to learn and engage with others who wish to do likewise."
