Sure. You are right. But how many families can afford it . It is even b etter to get education from Sokrates one to one . But can we do it ? Plus many f2f education are on the hand of not many good teachers. Teachers are paid well . Therefore there are less good teachers. Look up Finland . Teachers get the salary of a General Manager then education is best in the World , not online .I think it would be good to have better tools for face-to-face study groups.
BessieAll things considered, in e-learning, you accomplish degrees and recognitions at a quick pace and it is much less demanding than a classroom. It likewise makes you eligable for the openings for work that require a degree that you can likewise obtain online.
CarolynIt depends on how you approach it. To succeed, you'd need spend time beforehand (a lot of time) curating the courses and content that is usually offered on a traditional BA course. Then, you'd have to create and organise your own learning pathway with set goals along the way. MOOCs offer a great source of high quality content, but just taking MOOCs passively would not be enough. You'd need to do all the recommended background reading, keep up to date with the latest publications in your subject area, network with peers as much as possible, and ensure you find ways to implement your learning and knowledge in real terms.
There are two great examples that I know of where people have succeeded in obtaining the equivalent of an MBA using MOOCs:
Laurie Pickard: No-Pay MBA
Ankit Khandelwal: Great Real Life Example of Self-Directed Learning Using Technology
