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.

Butin has written or edited more than 80 academic works, including eight books. “Education Week” has named him among the top 200 “Public Presence” education scholars four years in a row.
