The importance, accessibility and cost of education is on the minds of everyone today--administrators, faculty, librarians, politicians and parents. In this environment, MOOCs seem to offer a lifeline to schools and communities seeking to reinvent education and lifelong learning in the Internet Age. But the conversation about MOOCs is complex and evolving. New partnerships are being formed to deliver tools and curriculum. New business models are emerging. Questions about accreditation and measurement abound. Do MOOCs represent a sea-change for both public and academic libraries? Or just a new twist on distance learning? Join OCLC at the ALA Midwinter symposium for a lively debate among MOOC practitioners, promoters… and skeptics.
