Online Learning: Is 2013 Year Of The MOOC?

by Ellis Booker, Information Week

Massive open online courses are forcing institutions to consider how to offer course credit and verify student identities. Coursera and other MOOCs are working with the American Council on Education (ACE), which is evaluating credit equivalency for these courses. ACE’s College Credit Recommendation Service, started in the 1970s, certifies training courses offered outside of traditional colleges. In 2011, StraighterLine became one of the first online institutions to be included in the ACE program.
