The Secret Benefits of Online Learning MOOCs - Daphne Koller, Huffington Post

Coursera’s goals and priorities are very well-aligned with those of our partner institutions - that’s a large part of the reason that we’ve been able to partner with over 140 of the world’s best universities. Every partner brings a slightly different perspective and strategy to their open online programs, and the primary motivation varies across institutions, but there a few major motivations that most have in common. Global impact: On Coursera, an instructor can teach more students in a single course than they might teach in an entire career on campus. For someone who’s passionate about their area of expertise and about sharing their ideas with others, this is an incredible opportunity. Instructors on our platform are often people who have spent their lives achieving mastery in a very specific topic, and Coursera allows them to reach the largest possible audience of learners who are interested in that topic and can benefit from the knowledge that an instructor has to share. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/quora/the-secret-benefits-of-on_b_9795420.html?ir=Education
