Study suggests viable ways to expand Higher Education to refugees
InZone's MOOC multi-center study featured in University World News article
In an article entitled "Study suggests viable ways to expand Higher Education for refugees," University World News correspondent Brendan O'Malley discusses InZone's research on MOOCs in urban and camp refugee settings in the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa.
As the piece argues, "By using on-site tutors and learning communities, massive open online courses or MOOCs can be successfully adapted to support the expansion of access to higher education to refugees in fragile situations and maintain learner motivation. While virtual mentoring did not appear to enhance learners’ chances to succeed in the course, a combination of virtual tutoring and mentoring and on-site tutoring significantly influenced the outcome for all learners."
