AC Grayling: Your lectures at Harvard have famously become available to everyone in the world online. MOOCs [massive open online courses] look as thought they’re going to transform education worldwide.

But there has been a push back on two fronts. One is that if these massive courses have tens of thousands of students taking them, and they do essays, there just aren’t enough professors to go around to mark them, so they’re graded by software. So there’s one question mark that pops up in people’s minds: is being taught by a computer OK?

Then the second thing is you’ve been challenged recently by an entire philosophy department at San Jose State University, who said, “you’re just about to put us out of a job because if our college just has your lectures online, they won’t need us.”

Where is higher education going?

Michael Sandel: As an experiment we put my justice course online and on television globally a few years ago, just to see what might happen and what might be the educational uses of this new technology.

The effect was beyond anything we could have imagined…
