Can MOOCs Have Positive Impact on Higher Ed?

September 13, 2017

In Monday's Academic Minute in Inside Higher Ed, the College of William & Mary's Stephanie Blackmon discussed whether massive open online courses can have a positive effect on higher education.

Blackmon, an assistant professor of higher education at William & Mary, specializes in technology integration in various higher education, professional development and adult-learning contexts. Blackmon says in the podcast that MOOCs are "the educational equivalent of fidget spinners. Some see them as just a shining, spinning fad that will soon be replaced by another sparkly object, while others see them as innovative, useful tools."
