CourseTalk Launches A Yelp For Open Online Courses And What This Means For Higher Education

CourseTalk Launches A Yelp For Open Online Courses And What This Means For Higher Education

 

I just love it when I make a wish . . . and it comes true.  I told a NY Times reporter some months ago that what we need now is a "Yelp for MOOCs."  I meant that, with the welter of course offerings out there, we need mechanisms like Rate My Prof that allows students to log their feedback in a crowdsourced, substantial way that can help guide other students on the best of the offerings now becoming available. Here's my original HASTAC post on this topic.  

Well, voila!  On TechCrunch I just read that an organization called CourseTalk is creating, yes, a Yelp for Moocs!

And here's the article on this new course evaluation service for MOOCs.

Screenshot below. Some of the classes already have 100+ reviews. Add yours to the mix!
