Podcast # 11 – The Impact of MOOCs on Teaching and Marketing

Vincent Mangematin“They will change the way we all approach teaching.”

This is what Vincent Mangematin, a professor at France’s Grenoble Ecole de Management, told me on FIR on Higher Education episode 11.

MOOCs are certainly causing disruption. Mangematin wrote in the Financial Times that MOOCs will leave behind a trail of failed global business schools. He elaborated on this piece in the podcast episode and addressed how academics should innovate in the way they go about presenting knowledge and fostering learning. He also discussed how marketers can use MOOCs as an opportunity to position programs and their school’s brand.

In our reports segment, I discuss how Wabash College used social media to raise over $465,000 in one day, while technology correspondent Harry Hawk discusses how he uses hashtags in the classroom.
