EAB’s Carla Hickman and Colin Koproske have been working together and studying the phenomenon of massive open online courses, or MOOCs, going back at least as far as 2012.

On today’s episode, the two touch on Coursera’s recent IPO-related financial filings and what that data might suggest in terms of their strategy going forward. Carla and Colin also examine the extent to which MOOCs and the companies that provide them, represent a threat to higher ed, or whether more colleges should be looking to partner with companies like Coursera to expand their own online course offerings.
