MOOCs

New America Foundation:  “Who’s Afraid of the Big, Free MOOCs?”  Interesting perspective, especially here:

. . . A well-regarded public university giving credit for free or inexpensive MOOCs, meanwhile, is like a crack in an enormous dam. When MOOC credits become widely available and the dam bursts, college prices that have been kept high [will] settle at a much lower level. . .

MOOCs could become game-changers in many ways.  Students may end up coming out ahead.
