MOOCs and Blended Learning – the future for the best students?

23 August 2013

In the last year or so there has been an explosion in the number and quality of courses that can be done online. These courses are usually called MOOCs, which stands for Massive Open Online Course http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massive_open_online_course.

Taking such a course alongside your university studies gives you a historically unique way to expand, deepen and broaden your university studies. We think it is likely that the best students will use this new opportunity to progress their learning in a way which may not have been possible to previous generations.

Arts and Sciences Director, Carl Gombrich, has written a piece on his blog http://www.carlgombrich.org/generation-blend/ about how MOOCs have been used by the first generation of Arts and Sciences students.

You can also find more information about MOOCs at many websites, for example, http://mooc.studentadvisor.com/ and http://degreed.com/mooc

Happy MOOCing!
