The following interview is with George Siemens, associate director of the Technology-Enhanced Knowledge Research Institute at Athabasca University. As Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) continue to grow in popularity, a debate has surfaced over whether these courses should be worth academic credits. In this interview, Siemens sheds some light on the debate, shares his thoughts on how MOOCs stack up against traditional lectures offered by universities and explains how the debate is more far-reaching than the acceptance of this new educational medium.
