re: MOOC Leader EdX Turns One: What's Next?
Michael, thanks for showering a one year child with all your wishes. I too wish all the MOOcs the very best and add to the wish list. I wish the MOOCs provides much needed quality education for the deprived learners. About the dropout rate it does not bother me at all because even 5%complete the courses then such numbers comes to be 7500 and how many brick and mortar universities can boast of educating more than that. And then imagine how much infrastructure you need to add that many numbers, each year. With passing years even employers are moving towards a scene when they will want to employ people who can perform and not what degree they hold and from where . Here is my heartfelt for the success of MOOCs-may they thrive in coming years!!!
