MOOCs by the numbers: Where are we now?

TED Blog

Whatever your opinion of them, you can’t deny that MOOCs have come a long way in the last few years. To help put the massive online courses into some perspective, Alex Cusack, a contributing writer at, a blog that covers news about MOOCs (edited by Zachary Davis, a producer for HarvardX, a spin-off of edX) shared this handy infographic.

Cusack, a consultant in educational technology, regularly works with corporations and universities looking to design online education programs. And he’s a MOOC alum himself; his own experience with the courses (he has variously started, completed and dropped out of classes offered by Coursera, edX, Udacity and Udemy) has informed his take on the topic.

The course is the first in a new set of courses offered by the university called Online X, which offers professional classes through the edX platform.

One important thing, though: these classes may be open, but they don’t come cheap. Participating in the course will run users $495 — far from the free price tags of many MOOCs available. But it’s likely that extra cost…

Olá! =)

Sou Eric Couto, formado em Engenharia da Computação e criei este blog com o intuito de promover o compartilhamento de conhecimento, implementações, notícias e minhas experiências em Análise de DadosIA, MOOC’s e demais assuntos correlatos.


Estreando o blog, gostaria de postar um demo interativo para que você possa testar alguns algoritmos de busca.

Em breve, falaremos detalhadamente de alguns desses algoritmos por aqui e faremos a implementação dos mesmos em Python! ^^
