4) What’s a “MOOC?” Only the latest 30,000-person virtual classroom

I’ve just wrapped up a great 3-day retreat with 7 other CEO’s of mission agencies. One of our number is plugged in well in the educational scene. He couldn’t wait to tell us about the rapid roll-out of these Massive Open Online Courses, or “MOOC’s,” as they’re called. Read more about them here…

Any class with 30,000 students gets my attention, even if only 20% of them graduate. Exciting stuff.

(Thanks Tony!)
