Reevaluating the Future of Online Education

 (Tina Barseghian/KQED)

A recent study of massive open online courses, known as "MOOCs," found that only about 4 percent of the million users tracked actually completed their courses. Earlier this year, San Jose State suspended its online courses after poor results, including one math class where fewer than a quarter of the students got a passing grade. We discuss the future of online classes.

Guests:

Laura Perna, professor of higher education at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education and co-author of the recent study on MOOCs

Sebastian Thrun, CEO and founder of Udacity

Peter Hadreas, chair of the Philosophy Department at San Jose State University
