Tor Wallin Andreassen at TEDxBergen
At TEDxBergen Professor Andreassen talks about the rapidly growing phenomena of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC).
He considers it to be a so called disruptive innovation - an innovation that has the potential to shock the established players of a sector.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
