A/V Now Available > FIE 2012 Plenary > Is There a MOOC in Your Future?

This plenary session from the 2012 Frontiers in Education in Seattle, WA ( on October 5, 2012 examined current trends and future prospects in online education. Massive Open Online Courses(MOOCs) have gotten a great deal of publicity in the last year, although the most widely-known MOOC offerings do not capture all of the richness of the original MOOCs. Much of the attention paid to MOOCs in the press has been centered around the idea that they may challenge the organizational structures and cost models of higher education. The participants in this session addressed many of these issues through a moderated discussion and a question and answer session with the audience.

The participants in the panel discussion included: Fred Martin, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Computer Science and Associate Dean, College of Sciences,University of Massachusetts Lowell, Dan Grossman, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Computer Science & Engineering, University of Washington, and Jennifer Dalby, M.Ed., Instructional Designer, Seattle University. The moderator for the panel was Richard LeBlanc, Chair of Computer Science and Software Engineering, Seattle University.
