The BBC Documentary program recently aired a two-part series on “The Education Revolution”, covering “Massive Open Online Courses” as well as “Learning with Videos and Video Games” – tune in:

Présentation1The Education Revolution

“Sarah Montague looks at how technology is transforming education, and what the classroom of the future will look like. In the second programme, Sarah turns her attention to universities, and in particular, to MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses). Some argue these free university online courses, presented by some of the best professors in the world, could – in cash strapped times – be the saviour of higher education and take university to people in some of the remotest regions of the world. Others argue they could destroy centuries of tradition.”
