Massive Open Online Courses, or MOOCs, are breaking lots of enrollment records. So far, according to the Huffington Post, one of the largest classes has been a philosophy course taught by Duke University professor Walter Sinnott-Armstrong and University of North Carolina professor Ram Neta.
When it was offered last November, “Think Again: How to Reason and Argue” attracted 180,000 students, from Germany to Afghanistan. But the completion rates of MOOCs are not as high as traditional classes. Currently, completing a MOOC usually just rewards a student with a certificate.
