(M)OOCs and Higher Ed: The Next Big Disruption?

Presenters: Barbara Sawhill Jim Groom, Alan Levine, Martha Burtis, Steve Greenlaw

MOOCs have been getting a lot of press as of late. Readers of the Chronicle or IHE  might be led to believe that the small group, face to face instruction is soon to arrive.  Is this indeed the case?  Can the fabulously successful model of UMW’s ds106 be replicated elsewhere.  Does it require a huge infusion of cash? Does it have to be massive?  A panel of experts, joined by a complement of novices will talk about  the potential, as well as the drawbacks, of MOOCs in Hugher Ed.  Please join the conversation!
