The MOOC is perceived as a major disruptive force in teaching, clearly one that the education world is talking about as hundreds of thousands of students across the globe log on to courses from some of the best professors on the planet. The debate is underway regarding quality, economic efficiency, sustainability, and global reach. Will MOOCs live up to the hype? Are MOOCs a viable alternative to the college campus education experience? Will our love affair with technology disrupt that one-on-one connection that so frequently brings learning to life?
