Surviving in the age of MOOCs

Webinars 2015

Webinar by Timo Looser, ETHZ, December 10, 2015

Ever since the launch of MOOCs, globalisation and digitisation have definitely reached higher education. While the effects can be neglected today, MOOCs are rapidly improving and especially with the introduction of certificates and quality control, it’s a matter of time before they gain sufficient reputation in the business world. It will become a legitimate question for students whether to choose a combination of MOOCs (for example complemented with applied projects) or a traditional Bachelor program.

What are the strategic options for (especially smaller) universities which do not have the money to compete with well-funded top-universities?

The goal of this webinar is to anticipate and analyse current trends and to propose practicable options to face this new reality.
