Why We Fear MOOCs – The Conversation

Why We Fear MOOCs – The Conversation – The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Fear?  Moocs?

“As hybrids, they defy easy categorization and threaten to upset the tidy categories we have for judging who is and is not college-educated. Like monsters, MOOCs threaten to disrupt our social world and bring chaos in their wake.”

The unknown has always challenged our sensibilities.  But the evolution of technology and education has gained significant momentum.  The best strategy is probably to get on board – at some level.  But are traditional bricks and mortar institutions ready to give up the turnstyle and massive investments in concrete and parking lots?
