MOOC’s (Massive Online Open Courses) will change higher education forever says this article in the Boston Globe. I believe that this will happen, perhaps not as fast as the article implies. Language learning is a great field for online learning. The University of Texas at Austin is a pioneer in this regard. I will be visiting their language centre, and my good friend Olrando Kelm, in March.
In its own way LingQ is an example of what online language courses can look like.
