In a report from the independent Research Institute, Ratio that is based in Stockholm, the researchers goes beyond MOOCs to find which additional parts the general digitalisation trend of higher education consist of. The conclusions include that the digitalisation will produce a massive transformation of the universities’ organisation as well as their offer to the students. The report is a field-study of successful online-universities in the US and shows that the quality of online-education is at least as good as traditional university-studies, but much cheaper. This opens new and interesting prospects to relocate resources to make the learning environment more effective, e.g. individualisation with personal advice and individual learning paths. This is also necessary to meet another part of the development, the globalisation of higher education. Source: Ratio Report Mer än bara MOOC:s
