Between MOOCs and Service-oriented Education: If Students Had the Choice

  • Enterprises demand universities not to limit education to theoretical knowledge, but instead, to prepare students for future challenges in the job.

This “conflict-ofinterest” can be bridged through extra-curricular professional training. MOOCs are hyped as solution because they allow to simultaneously addressing masses of students.
