This news about MITx new course is surely one of the most attractive headline of the day. I would be interested to learn if pedagogy would make a difference in the number of participants in such a “MOOC” – especially in attracting a massive number of students around the globe, after the Stanford AI course.
I have postulated here in my previous post that most of the interested learners would be at a younger age, rather than those old aged learners. There are also pre-requisite knowledge for the course with MITx. The course is free of charge.
