Meaningful Collaboration: Revitalizing Small Colleges with MOOC Hybrids (HYBRID PEDAGOGY)

A Digital Journal of Learning, Teaching, and Technology

by Kevin R. Burke and Jessica Mahoney

MOOCs, it appears, were not created to run the old guard out of town; rather, they can bring the best traditional liberal arts instruction in direct dialogue with fresh ideas from students across the globe. Recently Wellesley College announced its first course offerings with edX, making it the first liberal arts college to offer MOOCs. Will other small institutions be able to adapt?

“Administrations, though, should consider MOOCs an investment in student opportunities, not in a cost-saving measure.”

Extremely timely read for those interested in a liberal arts approach to online education and learning.
