MOOCs’ Missing Pieces

As with any new phenomenon, the experience of change and the promise of benefit create a measure of hyperbole. Some say MOOCs are the future of higher education; others contend they are over-hyped. The truth is no one knows where the exploration of online courses will lead. What is clear is that colleges and universities must further innovate in a few critical areas if they are to capitalize on MOOCs to their advantage and the people they serve: Pedagogy, Scalability, Lab experience, Cheating.

Until higher education invents solutions that address these areas of concern, the future and value of MOOCs is uncertain.
