The discussion leaders for tomorrow are Vanna, Lindsay, and Brienne. The topic is MOOCs and the future of education. They would like you to watch this video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqQNvmQH_YM
Please come prepared to discuss the following questions:
If you are hiring would this type of education turn you off to hire a person? Or, would this information be considered valuable, and more importantly, unique compared to other applicants who have only a degree from a university? In your opinion, are MOOCs credible or illegitimate?
Do you believe the advantages outweigh the disadvantages? Would you ever consider enrolling in MOOCs before a traditional, classroom course?
Do MOOCs democratize higher education?
What do you think is the future of education?
Do you think MOOCs are just a fad? Do you think they’ll continue to gain popularity or eventually “fizzle out”?
