Today is the day. As I have been blogging we are going to make an experiment at a national level. Four salvadoran universities have been challenged to enroll students in large numbers. The challenge has been extended to make students end the course successfully.
I have been sending emails, talking to students, discussing with professors, about this new idea of MOOC. MOOC stands for Massive Open Online Courses. This global educational experiment is shaking the concept of Higher education as we, to this very moment, know it.
At the University of El Salvador, We think we have a certain advantage. Last spring four of our present students did 6.002x. This time, They are going to help this new student generation.
We will see if this really give us an advantage.
