A Look at Penn State MOOCs a Year In

Richard Alley

Universities are testing the boundaries of online education with MOOCs, or Massively Open Online Courses. The courses are free and open to anyone and everyone who wants to take part. WPSU’s Emily Reddy takes a look at a Penn State MOOC that’s just wrapping up, about a year after the university first decided to try out this new educational format.

Emily Reddy is the news director at WPSU-FM, the NPR-affiliate public radio station for central and northern Pennsylvania.
