An Early Report Card on Massive Open Online Courses

MOOCs promise to change the face of higher education, one giant classroom at a time. Here's what they're doing well—and how they can do better.

If the MOOC movement were in college, it would be time for a freshman report card. The assessment: great potential, but still in need of remedial work.
MOOCs, or massive open online courses, went mainstream last year, heralded as the next great technological disruption in education. The big idea is that putting lecture videos and interactive course work on the Web will make it possible for top-notch university education to reach more students and allow for different styles of learning.
Already, MOOCs have shown they can attract students in huge numbers. The largest provider, Coursera, has drawn five million, and nonprofit provider edX more than 1.3 million. And while the majority are still based in the U.S., their learners come from all over the globe: Among edX's students, 9% came from Africa and 12% from India.

Big-name schools have also signed on to the idea. Top institutions—from Harvard University to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to Stanford University—and some companies have joined with MOOC providers to put courses online, free to anyone who wants to access them. Now more schools, to expand their student base and potentially reduce the cost of an education, are building online courses that cost money but offer actual college credit.

I am very happy that you all are aware of MOOCS which we believe will be among the next big revolutions of the Internet. In fact our medium term goal is to transform all our training programs into a MOOC platform and we hope to have the kind of quality content that these guys have. Really MOOCs are the future of education and the revolution is just beginning.

See some of the best MOOCs around:


Udacity: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login  (I recommend their startup business course - How to Build a Startup)

Open Learning Initiative: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

UC Berkeley: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login


I will add more later

@ Boss Tony - Thanks for the links.  It is really a revolution going by the high cost of receiving education in Nigeria.  There a millions of people out there that want to be more educated and are incapacitated by lack of money.

Priderock MOOCs are essentially very very high quality courses that are available online for anyone to access for free or a small fee. Just like our MOB is available for you to learn online.

Basically when you register or when you select a course. you are given access to download the course materials and lessons in the form of videos, ebooks and textbooks. You can even receive certificates and university credit when you complete some of these courses and write their exams - all for free.

In a sense our MOB is a kind of MOOC only that its not yet Massive and not completely open, but that is the direction we are headed.
