I'm coming out of the dark ages on MOOC.
Have you ever felt like you were "totally out of it," meaning "out of the know" on a subject? That is how I'm feeling when Wendy Freitag mention MOOC to me and it was a totally new term — I had never heard of it. Check out the Wikipedia definition, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC).
I do believe we are headed to a time when the average person of modest income will not be able to afford attending a four-five-year higher-education school. Thus, online education will dominate and only the rich will be in the universities, going back to the way it was at the "previous" turn of the century.
