How MOOCs are evolving with video technology


Over the past five years, modern lecture capture systems have become an established part of university education, and analysts predict that by 2016 lecture capture will become as ubiquitous as eMail on college campuses.

So as MOOCs continue to evolve in the years ahead, and as institutions look for ways to participate in this new medium, the price of video no longer needs to be an inhibiting factor. For schools that have already implemented lecture capture, cost-effective participation in a MOOC will largely be a byproduct of their existing education technology.
