Just checked the course enrollment page on http://www.iitbombayx.in, and was pleasantly surprised to see that 3000 participants have enrolled for the course. It is NOT a big deal anymore to have thousands of students. Well known fact that merely 8-10% of the MOOC participants actually complete the course, has made me think about two important issues:
- What will be the components of the course, which these large number of participants (from various parts of the country) will find interesting enough to complete the course?
- What are those components (present or absent) which will refrain the participants from completing the course?
I would seek your comments on the same, in order to address this important problem faced internationally! I would wait for your comments. Later I will edit this blog post (by referring your comments), to complete this thread, that I have started!
Keep those comments coming in…
