Personal statement

As a former teacher transformed to an e-learning consultant and working in Education and Student affairs at the Technical university of Delft, I was at first sceptical of MOOCs. My first experience of a MOOC by Blackboard was very disappointing, mind-blowingly bad! It troubled my own view. Experiencing a proper MOOC myself as a student, in particularly an edX one, would verify my own opinion of this new phenomenon. For years now it has been difficult for educators to really get ICT working. I won’t bother you with all the reasons, but a MOOC finally gives the opportunity to get it working. Suddenly there is time, money and support enough to experiment with proper online education without the burden of business models. In advance I can tell you that I was feeling more and more ‘euphoric' but as ever we need to be critical. A MOOC appears to be another new branch of free online education which is, in my opinion, an ideal way for lots of students of getting educated just for fun or of building a proper resume in their own living space.
