MOOCs, Take Two?

MOOCs, take two?

Reported by EdSurge, will the pandemic provide room for another MOOC moment?

Could on-campus students who avoided online courses turn to MOOCs over their first-choice institution in the interim for the cost savings alone?

Could incoming freshman who may have preferred a “gap” year, but with nowhere to travel to safe just yet, take a “MOOC” year instead?

The takeaway? If MOOCs were going to get an opportunity to jump back into the mainstream, now’s it.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
