EdX, Udacity and Coursera are most associated with MOOC’s but they are not the only providers. President of MOOC, Catherine Hills says, “We’re seeing a huge proliferation in models of online teaching and learning, but I don’t think we know yet about the quality implications or the cost implication.”
