June 28, 2017

Writing for Inside Higher Ed, Cathy Sandeen looked back at her past predictions and claims about massive open online courses to see how they’ve held up. Sandeen, chancellor of the University of Wisconsin Colleges and University of Wisconsin Extension, provided new insights and predictions. She said:

  • The term “MOOC” will go away. 
  • A viable business model will emerge.
  • Reputation, not revenue, drives investment.
  • MOOCs can be vehicles for continuous improvement in teaching and learning.
  • Higher ed will be firmly entrenched in the MOOC 3.0 era.
  • MOOCs can play an important role in postsecondary attainment.
