MOOCs Are Still Rising, at Least in Numbers - Ellen Wexler, Chronicle of Higher Ed

When one of the first massive open online courses appeared at Stanford University, 160,000 students enrolled. It was 2011, and fewer than 10 MOOCs existed worldwide. It has been four years since then, and according to a new report, the cumulative number of MOOCs has reached nearly 4,000. Compiled earlier this month by Dhawal Shah, founder of the MOOC aggregator Class Central, the report summarizes data on MOOCs from the past four years. And the data show that even as the MOOC hype has started to die down, interest hasn’t tapered off. http://chronicle.com/blogs/wiredcampus/moocs-are-still-rising-at-least-in-numbers/57527
