http://chronicle.com/article/MOOCs-Take-a-Major-Step/135750/y

An interesting article that discusses the next step for the use of MOOCs in higher education.

As stated by one of the people interviewed in this article, MOOC credits will be similar to high school graduates who enter college with AP credits.

Additional interesting comments are related to MOOCs being part of the “flipped classroom” by using MOOCs as the lecture part of the course, online, and the face to face classroom would be for discussions and group activities.

This article also suggests that MOOCs may, in some cases, may replace textbooks.
