Episode 33

This week, explore some of the tensions that spring from expanding the classroom beyond its physical confines and opening it up to anyone willing to put in the time and effort through Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Does the amount of time instructors have to put into these classes match the educational outcomes for the participants? How far can the mission of an institution extend before financial realities begin to kick in? What happens when students bear more and responsibility for their own learning? This episode explores these questions and offers insights from SAGE’s recent white paper, Assessing the Impact of Educational Video on Student Engagement, Critical Thinking and Learning: The Current State of Play.
