Description

These are exciting times in higher education (HE). Economic constraints coupled with rising tuitions and fees and tighter student loan rules have opened the doors to change. The change element, called the MOOC (massive open online course), labeled as a disruption or more dramatically, a tsunami, is less than two years old.
