N.Y. Public Library Plans Face-to-Face ‘Classes’ for MOOC Students

“In a pilot program with Coursera, the New York Public Library plans to organize meet-ups at which people taking massive open online courses can gather and discuss the courses with help from “trained facilitators.” The partnership is part the MOOC company’s effort to build an infrastructure for in-person learning around its free online courses. Research has suggested that MOOC students who receive offline help earn higher scores on their assessments.” (via The Chronicle of Higher Education)
