Online petition - Create "political roadmap" to turn MOOCs into a global standard at every public university by 2020
The idea of MOOC/blended learning is a fascinating idea to spread out top academic education to everyone. Free private online platforms like Udacity/Coursera founded by Stanford professors or KhanAcademy founded by a MIT/Harvard graduate, just to name a few, are outstanding practical examples.
However, what about all these public universities in the world which are financed by taxpayer funds?
The idea is that the government/parliaments in each country should pass a bill that MOOCs as part of “blended learning” are need to be implemented compulsorily at every public university till 2020.
Therefore citizens of each nation may submit "Online-Petitions" with content as follows:
Development of national education-roadmaps 2020 to define MOOC course standards, MOOC training programs for university staff and a step by step implementation-strategy. Entire course offerings have to be free of charge and be open for each citizen (taxpayer) of each nation
