Adapting courses for the digital era: the professors' perspective - CAROLINE SIMON, the Daily Pennsylvanian

For the thousands of students from 195 countries who enroll in one of Penn’s online courses, the benefit of free, accessible education is obvious. But the professors who spend hours planning lessons, recording lectures and moderating online forums benefit from the surge in online learning as well. Fifty-seven faculty members at Penn currently offer courses through the massive open online course provider Coursera, a number that may rise as the University begins its recently announced partnership with edX, another MOOC provider. As of this year, online courses are offered by all of Penn’s 12 schools. http://www.thedp.com/article/2015/08/moocs-from-professors-perspectives
