Massive open online courses are shaking up higher education

By Katherine Forestier. Massive open online courses are seen as a game-changer in education. But they worry the establishment, even as more universities rush to introduce them, writes Katherine Forestier.
The numbers, at least, are massive. One million users signed up to 16 University of Pennsylvania online courses; about 83,000 for the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology's course "The science of gastronomy" and 23,000 for Chinese University's "The role of renminbi in the international monetary system".
No lecturer could ever imagine reaching out to so many students, unless they double as a television star like Manchester University's physicist Brian Cox. Massive open online courses, or Moocs, are being heralded as a game-changer in higher education by the likes of Simon Marginson, the Australian higher education guru now based at the Institute of Education in London, or as a tsunami sweeping through the sector, by Li Fei, vice-president at Wuhan University.

Russia will send its geniuses abroad

Pravda.ruBy Maria Snytkova. Modern Russia lacks personnel, and there is no place to create them. The Russian labor market is flooded with poorly educated managers, and professions that require knowledge and responsibility are not popular. In order to encourage potential engineers, doctors and scientists to not work as managers, the authorities decided to pay them to study abroad.
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree aimed at strengthening the human resource capacity of the country. To improve the situation with the lack of specialists in such important for any country professions as engineers, doctors, scientists, and so on, it was decided to stimulate Russian students by sending them to graduate schools abroad. Students who earned bachelor's degrees in Russian universities may enter leading universities included in the three world rankings (The Times Higher Education, Shanghai University and Quacquarelli Symonds), and be eligible for financial support from the government. There is only one caveat - after graduation they must go home and find a job. More...

Sweden needs more international students

The LocalWith a sharp decrease in the number of non-EU students coming to Sweden since tuition fees were introduced, industry and university heads argue that the only way Sweden can compete internationally is to offer scholarships to entice more foreigners.
Higher education is becoming all the more important as a competitive factor in today's globalized society. Many countries are investing in and expanding their education systems and there is a clear increase in the number of students getting ther education abroad. The total number of students studying abroad worldwide  is around three million. These people are an important part of resource for competency in the future.

This is significant for those who end up working in Swedish companies abroad. More...
