Coursera announced new interesting project – Learning Hubs.
At Coursera, we envision a future where everyone has access to a world-class education. We strive to create and deliver experiences that break down daily barriers that stand in the way of successful learning. Today, in support of our goals, we’re delighted to announce a new initiative- Coursera Learning Hubs – that will offer people around the world physical spaces where they can access the Internet to take a Coursera course, while learning alongside peers in an interactive, facilitated setting. All for free.
This looks like just one more blog post same as thousandths every day. But it is not mediate post. On our opinion this is new signal of big changes in higher education system.
This event opens new page in history of education revolution. Like 2 years ago MOOCs changed our view on higher education, open physical places to study MOOCs will strengthen our confidence in coming changes.
In MyEducationPath.com we were happy when this blog post was published. We predicted and expected this happens. This is why 5 months ago we started the Places to Study tool on our web site. Since that time there is only one place – MOOC Campus. But now we will add 25 places from Coursera. And we are sure new places will appear not quickly. Different MOOC providers will also be interested in such local places for their students.
There is prediction of MyEducationpath.com founder Roman Gelembjuk Business opportunities around MOOC. One of forecasts recently confirmed. What will be confirmed next?
