College Reinvented in the Year of the 'MOOC'

Hosted by

If you've never heard of a MOOC, don't worry. Massive Open Online Courses are only a year old. But Stanford, Harvard and other prestigious schools are now using them to reach millions of students worldwide. On this archived edition of To the Point, we hear about the benefits — and the limits — of higher education on the Internet. Also, Greeks face a harsh winter at the end of a year of European austerity, and the new generation of leaders in both North and South Korea. Will they make a difference?
