Online and open-access learning in higher education: MOOCs, new pedagogies and business models
Date: Tuesday 5 February 2012
Venue: Beveridge Hall, Senate House, University of London
This one-day seminar has been organised by University of London, International Programmes, The Observatory on Borderless Higher Education and the Leadership Foudation for Higher Education.
It takes a critical look at the current surge of online and open-access higher education in the US, as well as its emergence in the UK and elsewhere. What does it have to offer – to students and to universities seeking to adapt to this new landscape?
Online delivery providers delivered case studies of their business models, across a range of niches to include open-access provision. Participants had the opportunity to consider and critique these models.
