The Future of Learning Online

July 18th, 2012   Theme: Internet Freedom

As the number of distant courses is growing at universities all over the world, and as access to information is less than a click away, free online courses are becoming more and more popular. The MIT’s Open Courseware is one of the best known, but Udemy, Coursera, the Minerva Project and Udacity all offer courses created by top universities. The format is called Massively Open Online Course (MOOC) and combines video lectures, individual exercises and social interaction through chat rooms and Facebook. Many courses are for free and you will also receive a certification. Anya Kamenetz, a senior writer at Fast Company Magazine, has written several books about new forms of education and in a lecture she discusses the future of learning online.
