We say, "Yes," to this proposal. If you read just one article, or an executive summary of it, you've learned something in SCUP's Change & Disruption MOOC:
MOOCs encourage the ‘look see’ approach to learning, and as they are free or very cheap, the consequences are negligible. Do the people who don’t finish a MOOC rush back to college or Universities with cheques in their hand? Of course not. The decision to take or drop out of a MOOC is not a life changing decision in terms of money, time or commitment.
