Future Internet Assembly, Athens

I was invited to attend the Future Internet Assembly in Athens, where I took part in a panel discussion: ‘Beyond MOOCs: The Future of Learning on the Future Internet‘. The FIA website includes video footage of the entire panel.

I spoke on my experience with the FutureLearn platform for massive open online courses (MOOCs). Since running its first course in September, FutureLearn now has more than a quarter of a million registered users and over half a million course sign ups.

I talked about the benefits that massive participation can offer to learners, educators and to society and about some of  the implications of MOOCs for the future of the internet, with a particular focus on authentication, interoperability and accessibility.
