All teachers should read this. Whether they want to put material online for students or not, how best to deliver material online is an issue that will affect all teachers. We are simply not going to have a choice. This is an easy-to-read look at past and present practices with an insightful and balanced look at the possible future.

Helpful in understanding the concept of MOOCs and beginning a discussion, but not incredibly thought provoking. Poor editing with many grammatical errors and repetition. Good introduction to the topic.

Format: Paperback
This book's subtitle is premature. However, I am convinced that, in time, Massive Open Online courses (MOOCs) will indeed change the world in ways and to an extent that cannot be determined now. The same was true of the printing press, the Internet, and then the World Wide Web. That said, there is a great need now to begin the difficult process of identifying potentialities, to be sure, but also identify at least fundamental terms and conditions to consider as well as concerns to be addressed. This book makes a modest but valuable contribution to that process as does Michael Nanfito's MOOCs: Opportunities, Impacts, and Challenges: Massive Open Online Courses in Colleges and Universities.

As explained in the Introduction, "By the time the first MOOC appeared, online education had been evolving slowly for nearly two decades." It is important to keep in mind that in 1993, Tim Berners-Lee, a British computer scientist then associated with CERN (the European Particle Physics Laboratory), introduced the World Wide Web. The Introduction then points out that "MOOCs were first introduced through a University of Manitoba course called 'Connectivism and Connective Knowledge' and the term was coined by Canadian University of Prince Edward Island's Dave Cormier. Widespread international interest in MOOCs began in 2011 when Stanford's Professor Sebastian Thrun's course 'Introduction to Artificial Intelligence' was offered in MOOC format through Stanford University. Anyone could take the class as long as they had an internet connection. Over 160,000 people enrolled in the free online class."

The co-authors are Jonan Donaldson, Eliane Agra, Mohammed Alshammari, Andrew Bailey, Daniel Bowdoin, Meghan Kendle, Lauren Nixon, and Lisa Wressel.
