Go Beyond “Novelty”

bized magazine

Anyone who doubts that
MOOCs can be transformational
in students’ lives should know the
story of Ankit Khandelwal, a young
man from India who dedicated two
years of his life to taking MOOCs
from Wharton, MIT, Yale, and
other institutions. His goal was to
use MOOCs to create a personalized
program he calls “Envisioning
the 21st-Century Global Manager,”
as he was determined to provide
himself with the skill set of such a
leader. He found the online discussion
forums particularly useful, he
told me, because “studying with
so many bright-minded individuals
around the globe was very exciting.”
He also said that MOOCs
“helped me exceed my own expectations
and reinvent myself by providing
quality education even when
I was sitting more than 10,000
miles away.” He discusses his educational
journey on his website at
ankitkhandelwal.in/.
