Great sharing on MOOCs by Audrey Watters and Philipp Schmidt. Thanks to Benjamin Stewart for his link.
HackEducation’s Audrey Watters and Philipp Schmidt, co-founder of P2PU join us to discuss the ever emerging role of massive open online classes in education. Hyped by many as the torch for democratizing education, we delve into the reality of how MOOCs really work, including varying delivery models, as well as clarifying who their primary users are today.
Going way beyond such usual suspects as MITx and Stanford, we discuss scalable open courses, technology based-assessment, and ultimately what needs to be done to truly democratize education after all.
