Bernard Nkuyubwatsi reports that he has been "following closely the MOOC initiative by Generation Rwanda and its Kepler initiative (Leber 2013, Bartholet 2013 and O’Neil 2013)." The post reviews some of the questions about MOOCs raised in the articles: will the credentials be accepted by employers, will non-native English speakers be able to follow the discourse, will education offered in Rwanda be of a lower quality? "Maybe," he writes, "people can innovate new models to include the 2,646 who were not admitted in the Kepler and Generation Rwanda MOOC initiative." That would be good to see.
