1. VPA Special Event: "Understanding the MOOC Trend"

    Andrew Pellish, Education Advisory Board

    February 26, 2013

    Massive Open Online Courses, or MOOCs, have quickly become a powerful force in higher education, enjoying popularity among the world’s most elite institutions and attracting millions of students across the globe. Will these experiments in large-scale instruction and certification prove to be truly disruptive, or will they serve primarily to enhance the brand and virtual footprint of well-endowed institutions? Will students and employers begin to view MOOC offerings as viable alternatives to conventional credentials? This talk seeks to address these questions and outline lessons from the frontier of online instruction that colleges and universities might apply in their own curricula.
