What is the future of Coursera, edX, Udacity, FutureLearn, MiriadaX and other MOOC platforms?
Robert Ubell, a renowned online learning guru and consultant, has a clear view:
“MOOC platforms will provide full credit programs for a fee.”
“MOOCs proposition was destined to die because there was no finance in how to continue. This is why they had to find a transformative approach,” he adds.
“Programs from Georgia Tech and the University of Illinois are good examples. Their offering is connected to their revenue stream.”
In the interview below, conducted during the SXSW EDU conference this week in Austin, Mr. Ubell also highlighted the examples of UMass, University of Southern Florida Central, and University of Arizona State University.
