Guest visitor Author A.W. Tony Bates explained the functionality, costs and benefits of Massive Online Courses (MOOCs). There appears to be more work and research on how these courses may benefit learners and how to make more accessible to individuals in less developed countries. MOOCs can be useful as an advertising tool for universities by exposing learners to their educational institution. Author Bates also answered one of my most pressing questions about the potential role of artificial intelligence in distance education or mobile learning. Author Bates does not believe that artificial intelligence will replace teachers or serve a significant role in education. What a great and exciting Wimba session.
