President Michael Roth hopes Wesleyan's new online courses will shed light on how people learn

President Michael S. Roth was interviewed for an article in Inside Higher Ed on liberal arts schools entering the world of Massive Open Online Courses, or MOOCs. Wesleyan was the first liberal arts school to offer MOOCs, in a partnership with the company Coursera, and Roth says he hopes the experience will offer new insights on how people learn, allow professors to improve their courses on campus, and help spread the Wesleyan academic experience to a much wider audience around the world.
