Simple Solutions to Complex Problems--MOOCs as a Panacea?
Bass, Scott A.
Journal of General Education, v63 n4 p256-268 2014
This article is critical of the implementation of massive open online courses (MOOCs) by institutions seeking the deep student learning often found in general education learning outcomes. Customized student interaction with an expert in the field is rendered impossible by the scale of mooc enrollment. Concerns are also raised about the economic model of mooc s. Nevertheless, the article explores the importance of technology-aided instruction in the classroom and the appropriate use of lectures drawn from mooc s and other sources.
