Know It All at Learning Solutions Magazine
The US magazine Learning Solutions Magazine has talked to Know It All project director Krista Di Eleuterio about the new international MOOC platform promoted by the GUIDE Association. “It is a forum where universities can promote their MOOCs to the widest possible audience free of charge. If it works, it will be a one-stop shop for students to choose from a fast growing and bewildering range of opportunities, directing them from the portal directly to the MOOC of choice. For the university there will of course be the direct benefit of their MOOC being visible to a wider pool of potential students.
