New Research Effort Aims to Examine Effectiveness of MOOCs

The MOOC Research Initiative, financed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will award grants of $10,000 to $25,000 to researchers seeking to explore issues such as student experiences in MOOCs and the free courses’ systemic impact.” (via The Chronicle of Higher Education)
