Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are the latest disruption to traditional educational patterns. Instead of asking students to pay for the courses Universities are giving them away free. This implies that Universities are changing business models and some critics suggest that these new business models will be the death of traditional Universities. Furthermore, educational experts are criticising MOOCs for limited pedagogy and enormous drop-out rates. Many commentators suggest that MOOCs are now passing the peak of inflated expectations on the new technologies hype cycle, and will soon be history. This talk takes a more optimistic middle path, suggesting that Universities that are agile can go with the flow of the disruption (or avalanche?) to the educational benefit of their students, both on campus and at distance. MOOCs are encouraging teachers to take a fresh look at the benefits of blended learning activities, social learning and peer support. At the same time University administrations are revising their financial models for supporting learning and curriculum development. This talk will look at some of the latest trends in the way MOOCs are starting to change educational practice. The educational landscape is being disrupted, but maybe for the better.
