    Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) might be the proverbial “tipping point” in discussions about the role of information and communication technologies in higher education. To some they offer dramatic cost savings without loss in quality; to others they are best described as MESS (Massive Extension of Sage on the Stage). If the history of IS is any guide, MOOCs portend dramatic changes over time, but perhaps less dramatic changes in the short run. This panel discusses the MOOC phenomenon and its implications for both the IS field and for higher education.
