MOOCs Moving On, Moving Up - Cathy Sandeen, Inside Higher Ed

With some exceptions noted, MOOCs are mainly a technology business, focused on providing a return on investment (even for nonprofits like edX) by targeting the large nondegree professional development and technology training market. Though the MOOC experiment over the past five years has resulted in many positives, this era also reminds us that when it comes to degree attainment, there really is no magic bullet. The hard, in-the-trenches work of helping the students of today get and remain focused, learn, and stick it out to degree completion remains the province of mainstream higher education -- MOOCs or no MOOCs. https://www.insidehighered.com/views/2017/06/22/essay-looking-back-predictions-about-moocs
