Full Blown Baccalaureate MOOC-Delivered within 5 Years - Sean Coughlan, BBC

Coursera Founder Daphne Koller says "A full-blown undergraduate degree - I'd be surprised if that didn't happen within five years. Will it be fully online? Or will it have some residential components? That remains to be seen." Prof Koller said the technology had kept improving, but universities had been held back by the "protection of the brand" and not wanting to be seen to move away from personal tuition. "It's the perception we need to break, it's not the technology that's been the barrier," she said. In terms of supervising exams for distance learners, she said that webcams are "surprisingly hard to beat".
