Forbes Magazine features Merrimack Professor

Forbes Magazine recently published an op-ed piece written by Merrimack College professor Dan Butin, the founding dean of the School of Education & Social Policy. Butin’s op-ed discusses the improving model of digital learning, specifically massive open online courses (MOOCs). The development of MOOCs opens educational opportunities to many would-be students at more affordable prices but the quality of education was suspect until recently when MIT made a break-through innovation.
