posted on Jun 6, 2013 by willem in DelftX
After the OCWC Global Conference I enjoyed my holliday and I'm still catching up on all the MOOC activities in the past month. So here is a list of interesting items:
- Georgia Tech to Offer a MOOC-Like Online Master's Degree, at Low Cost
Georgia Tech announced a partnership with Udacity and AT&T to offer a scalable computer science master’s program using MOOC technologies.
- A Bangladeshi Teen Reviews His First Udacity MOOC
"the course was a great experience: awesome lessons, awesome teachers, awesome learning and, most of all, really enjoyable."
- What do FutureLearn’s Terms and Conditions say about open content?
FutureLearn content will not be open educational resources in any real sense.

- Disaggregating the Aggregators: MOOCs as Course Supplements
MOOCs will inevitably pass through a period in which their incorporation is resisted, whether because they are being imposed on universities by legislators or because every new kind of course supplement, from textbooks to computers to online materials, always faces an initially slow uptake.

Thanks for the mention of Shah’s review Willem. He’s a remarkable young man, and his story makes interesting reading. The link seems to be broken, however. I hope you get a chance to edit it when you have a moment, and I hope you see some other material on our site that interests you. Yours, Robert McGuire Editor, MOOC News and Reviews
