MOOCs can accelerate the mainstreaming of museum content into education
Partnering... raises the profile of our education work

If you could present a high quality online class that encourages discussion, study groups and participant creation, and deliver that to 20,000 people (even if only 2000 finish the whole thing) – why wouldn’t you? - Erin Branham, eDigital, http://www.edgital.org/2013/03/03/moocs-and-museums/
As museum professionals and educators, it is a salient idea to remember that MOOCs are new, especially in museum environments. The significance of this is three-fold: 1) learning is a pretty messy process; 2) we are all learning together about MOOCs and their potential to engage new and existing museum learners, and 3) there is no one single way to how MOOCs are used. - David Greenfield, http://www.edgital.org/2013/05/22/mw2013-reflections-moocs-museums-and-mistakes/
