MOOCs guide for policy-makers in developing countries - Jane Marshall, University World News

Massive open online courses, or MOOCs, have been expanding rapidly throughout the world since the ‘Year of the MOOC’ in 2012, offering higher education, often free, to millions of learners – especially in developed countries with wide access to the right technology and resources. Now there is a guide to raise MOOC awareness in less well equipped developing nations, and to advise their educational policy-makers how, through online learning including MOOCs, they can build new routes to higher education and lifelong learning to benefit increasing numbers of their young – and older – people. Making Sense of MOOCs: A guide for policy-makers in developing countries is edited by Mariana Patru of UNESCO and Venkataraman Balaji of the Commonwealth of Learning.
