The Campaign for the Future of Higher Education (CFHE) has released a short animated video disputing the overblown and misleading claims made by the online higher education industry about Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).
Online Ed: Teaching Millions or Making Millions?
Spread the word.
CFHE is a national grassroots campaign to support quality higher education; it is comprised of faculty organizations from 21 states, including the PSC and our sister union at SUNY, United University Professions, and the California Faculty Association, representing the Cal State campuses. The video was unveiled formally in front of hundreds of faculty at CFHE’s Seventh National Gathering in Albany, New York the weekend of May 17 - 18. PSC hosted the Sixth National Gathering of CFHE over the Dr. Martin Luther King Day weekend. (Videos from the gathering.)
CFHE recently released a series of working papers on online higher education available at futureofhighered.org/workingpapers.
