On Campus: New MOOCs at UW-Madison. (Wisconsin State Journal, 7/2/2014).
Welcome to the latest educational fad. The school’s four courses last school year reached more than 135,600 people in about 141 countries and all 50 states, according to the university. It will continue to partner with the online learning company Coursera.
The numbers -- 4 and 135 -- are massively absurd to anyone who has taught an online course and values interaction with and among students.
