A new report by Moody’s Investors Service suggests that while MOOCs’ exploitation of expanded collaborative networks and technological innovation will benefit higher education in the United States as a whole, their long-term effect on the for-profit sector and smaller not-for-profit institutions could be damaging.

MOOCs – The revolution has begun, says Moody’s

MOOCs – massive open online courses – have garnered considerable attention since Stanford University’s artificial intelligence course in the autumn 2011 semester attracted nearly 160,000 students. While the course’s completion rate was low (15.6%), the scale of the response excited many in the higher education community – from institutions to venture capital companies. Indeed, the report notes that MOOCs represent a “pivotal development” in the evolution of higher education and have the potential to revolutionise the way a centuries-old industry has operated.

YouCanToo!

There are hundreds of adult education sites throughout the five boroughs offering free classes. Adult learners are all ages - last year, more than 3,000 people over the age of 60 enrolled in classes and over 13,000 were between 45 and 59. 2.3 million adult NYC residents lack basic prose literacy skills. 1.6 million NYC residents over the age of 16 don't have a high school diploma or GED. 1.3 million adult New Yorkers have limited English proficiency. Improving your skills pays off: in New York State, people without a high school diploma or GED earn only half of the state's median income. Taking a prep class for the GED makes you much more likely to pass the exam - in 2009, 60% of students coming from prep classes earned their GED while only 36% of those who hadn't taken prep classes passed the exam.

There is NO FEE to take the GED in New York state.
