I know what you mean… Strangely even though MOOCs is one of my research fields, and Chronicle is part of my regular reading, I don’t remember reading that article (will check it out after I reply now). One of the things I do know about MOOCs is that most ppl on MOOCs already have a degree, and many have a masters or even PhD (ahem). I don’t want to come up with any theories as to the majority males in that study, coz every idea that came to mind was stereotyping in some way! I do know, though, that despite the many shortcomings of MOOCs, they seem like a good outlet for women, especially those who are less mobile (I actually made that particular point at a recent panel at the launch of Edraak)… So you’d expect more women to be taking them… Would love to hear your theory on this 🙂
