I was so excited when I first heard about Massive Open Online Courses – MOOCs. Free education, accessible to all. Could they be the answer to poor quality and spread of education in developing countries? Hell, could I have not bothered with my university degrees and simply learnt everything online?
Here’s an article I wrote about whether MOOCs increase access to education. It’s for my professor at Quinnipiac, Phill Simon – or rather for his Interactive Media website. (Take a look around, there’s some good stuff on there.)
