LabXChange: A MOOC Remix

Could MOOCs find new life if faculty could borrow from other courses to create their own?

Reported by EdSurge, HarvardX’s founding faculty director, Robert Lue, is building a new platform called LabXChange designed to deliver on the promise of free education for all.

The vision? Fully open source curriculum materials. The challenge? Getting universities and faculty willing to share.

The takeaway? A Wikipedia-like repository of world-class teaching materials could likely help create a whole new world of MOOCs. But these also may suffer from the lack of certification and accreditation currently granted to them.

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