As students and administrators seek anytime, anywhere access to the cloud, higher ed IT teams must face their fears and get to work.
MOOCs are controversial, but there is one thing that everyone agrees on: We need more research.
Harvard and MIT, both members of edX, have compiled data that will go a long way toward helping educators understand who takes MOOCs, and why. Rather than offering access to the raw data, each institution has given its data a visual treatment.
In total, Harvard and MIT MOOCs enrolled nearly 2 million students and awarded more than 65,000 certificates. Students were predominantly male, and most had already completed a bachelor’s degree. MOOCs are especially popular with students in their mid- to late twenties, and the reach — 193 countries and 188 countries respectively — was impressive.
