In an opinion piece published by the Boston Globe, Suffolk University President James McCarthy urges colleges and universities to get on board for the “technological revolution sweeping higher education at warp speed.”

He points out that changes in technology, particularly MOOCs, or massive open online courses, will affect students and institutions in different ways, but that it’s very important to preserve both “institutional variety and variety in the voices that guide student learning.”

His article, "All MOOCs are not the same," encourages private and public colleges, universities and community colleges to become full participants as technology changes higher education.

“It is imperative that these expert educators become deeply involved in the design and creation of the technology-enhanced teaching and learning now being developed,” writes McCarthy.
