The Anti-MOOC? Small Costly Online Courses
“There’s a moment in John Covach’s course on the history of rock music when he takes apart the Beatles song that launched the British Invasion. Intrigued? Until now only students at the University of Rochester could take Covach’s class. Starting next fall it’ll be open to students at Duke, Northwestern, and Vanderbilt—online. Rochester is one of 10 universities teaming up to offer online courses to one another’s students.”
