Much aMOOC about Nothing: Is Real Research Coming?
Williams, Vicki; Su, Nai-Fen
International Journal on E-Learning, v14 n3 p373-383 Jul 2015
In this age of continual technology advances, educators have become somewhat used to rapid innovation and change brought on by new learning technologies. Higher education institutions are constantly researching new forms of educational delivery, but academe in general has had some difficulty understanding the potential of MOOCs. To date, serious research on the impact of MOOCs on learning is fairly scarce. The authors examine the present state of MOOC research and speculate on why it is so.
