Facebook testing new features to turn site into platform for online education - Shalina Chatlani, Education Dive

Managers of Facebook groups listed as a class or school have noticed that the site now has an option where they can upload course units that can also track progress, reports Inside Higher Ed. The program is actually the company's initiative to connect developers together, in a program known as Developers Circle; Facebook has teamed up with Udacity to develop training programs for them on artificial intelligence and internet-connected devices, but other users in the education space have noticed that these features are available more widely. Facebook has not definitively said whether these features were intended to turn the site into a platform for online learning; rather, a Facebook spokesperson had said that the company is still "testing" them. http://www.educationdive.com/news/facebook-testing-new-features-to-turn-site-into-platform-for-online-educati/444874/
