Does the world want our MOOCs?
Oh, burn! What a disappointment to think that “we” don’t have all the answers.
Inside Higher Ed reports that:
Online higher education is increasingly hailed as a chance for educators in the developed world to expand access and quality across the globe.
Yet it may not be quite so easy. Not only does much of the world not have broadband or speak English, but American-made educational material may be unfit for and unwanted in developing countries, according to academics who have worked for years on online distance education and with open educational resources, or OER.
