Who’s Taking MOOCs? Teachers - Casey Fabris, Chronicle of Higher Ed

In free online courses offered by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, teachers are increasingly the students. A study by the two universities has found that teachers are enrolling in their MOOCs in high numbers. The study examines data from some one million MOOC students who enrolled in courses at edX, the nonprofit learning platform started by Harvard and MIT. Some one-fifth of participants answered a survey about their background in teaching, and 39 percent of them said they were current or former teachers. http://chronicle.com/blogs/wiredcampus/whos-taking-moocs-teachers/56305
