Abstract

As has been apparent for the past several months, MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courseware) have emerged as a powerful contender for the next new education technology. Yet the landscape of education technology is littered with the remains of previous technological breakthroughs that have failed to live up to their initial promise, or at least their initial rhetoric. This panel will present a lively debate about the promise, and realities, of MOOCs and whether they are transformative, or merely a faddish trend.
