Moderating MOOCs

Published: 4 Apr 2013

MOOC, an acronym that's odd to pronounce, stands for Massive Open Online Course. In a nutshell, a MOOC allows free access online to top courses and teachers from elite universities.
"MOOCs are probably the most profound development in higher education in the past year," says Arshad Ahmad (MBA'81), an associate professor of finance at Concordia's John Molson School of Business.
