DescriptionProfessor Clayton Christensen from Harvard University claimed in his book Disrupting Class in 2008 that education as we know it was ripe for disruption. He predicted that online learning would disrupt the campus based education system. 2012 was named the year of MOOCs, where we saw an explosion of massive open online courses from the worlds leading universities. This trend with plattforms that distribute courses for universities have had an unprecedented growth. In the first quarter of 2014  there was total MOOC increase of 62% from 1369 to 2230, and the numbers are rising. What impact will this development have for higher education? How do small countries like Norway relate to this global development? What are the trends for higher education?
