See on Scoop.itUsing Technology to Transform Learning

“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.”
