MOOCs and the Myths of Dropout Rates and Certification

MOOCs and the Myths of Dropout Rates and Certification

“Yes, because that kind of education for the purpose of passing a test worked so well for Manchurian China.

Not everyone will be able to learn in a MOOC. And sometimes students succeed because of the students around them and the atmosphere the university sets.

I'm surprised you found Universities disruptive, time consuming, and inefficient. If you look at the graduation rates of the better universities, they're much higher than state schools and much much better than community colleges.”

“Okay maybe that was a bad idea. I just hope that MOOCs get better in the future. There is no way Universities like my own instate one should command a fee of $37,000 a year. That is robbery in broad daylight. If the goverment were the one who gave students credentials, I doubt any student would attend a university for that price. As a result students could deleverage and maybe get a home when they finish their education. Instead of a big fat bill.”
