  5. 5. MOOCs Matter! © 2012 Tata Interactive Systems. All rights reserved. In 2016, a group of students will receive master’s degrees in computer science from Georgia Institute of Technology. These students will pay $7,000 for the degree – about one-sixth of the traditional cost – and may never set foot on campus. Thanks to an agreement between Georgia Tech, AT&T, and Udacity, a venture- capital funded online education startup, students will learn virtually via a “massive open online course,” or MOOC. http://news.thomasnet.com/IMT/2013/05/21/can-moocs-solve-the-stem-problem/

  7. 7. Why MOOCs? © 2012 Tata Interactive Systems. All rights reserved. It seems to me, at least with respect to MOOCs, that we have skipped an important step. We’ve jumped right into the "chase" without much of a discussion about what problems they could help us to solve. We have skipped the big picture of where higher ed is going and where we want to be in 10 or 20 years.

  9. 9. What values we want to promote? © 2012 Tata Interactive Systems. All rights reserved. Socialization – Individualization – Collaboration Critical thinking; creativity; research-intensive learning; information seeking; sense-making; self-directed; self-regulated learning
  10. 10. What can MOOCs do? © 2012 Tata Interactive Systems. All rights reserved. • Remove limitations posed by geographical/space constraints • Leverage technology to transform how education is delivered – Leverage the strengths of cloud-based model – Leverage the strengths of sophisticated e-learning methodologies to develop skills and promote “active learning” • In the blended mode, MOOCs can flip a classroom and help instructors to act more of a mentor • By their mere massive and open nature, MOOCs have the potential to promote – Diversity – Openness – Interactivity – Autonomy empowering students as explorers and creators to follow their passion in diverse directions 
