Have Massive Open Online Courses fulfilled the high hopes and great expectations of an open and global digital higher education world?

In my talk, I will focus on the spatial dynamics and development of the MOOC providers from a macro-perspective. Based on a multi-level conception of spatial dynamics and a panel data set (2011-2017), I will show that the “MOOC market” is – other than initially hoped and expected – not a fully open digital higher education landscape but instead has expanded worldwide driven to a large extent by national higher education strategies. It thus has a nested two-level spatial structure both on a global scale and within many national higher education systems. The results should provide a fruitful starting point for discussing the relationship between digitalization and local institutional embedding of higher education.

Due to the current situation on the Coronavirus this seminar will only take place online upon further notice. The live stream of the presentation will be posted here.
