This was sent to me by Muhammad Saleem. The infographic takes a closer look at reasons why some professors and academics remain unconvinced. I’ve taken a MOOC and found it interesting but I was not motivated enough to complete the activities or finish the course, but that’s only a sample size of one. I think the hype is a little over the top in terms of impact on education. To me, the future is always “and” not “or” the question is not…”Are MOOCs going to replace traditional university courses?” instead, the question I think is “How are MOOCs and traditional university courses going to interact, work together, work apart and impact each other?” One will not entirely replace the other, they will both co-exist.
