Are SPOCs a better option for online education than MOOCs?

Higher education can be considered a luxury for many people worldwide. If we put it on a black to white spectrum, we can group countries into at least three shades: whitish, greyish, and blackish.

Denmark, for example, would belong to the whitish part. Higher education in Denmark is free of charge and scholarships and student grants are very much available. This whitish part is very small, though.

On the other side of the spectrum are countries where most of the population can only dream about higher education, because only a few — the elite — have access to it. This blackish part is very big.

But the biggest part of the said spectrum is the greyish one. In countries in this area, higher education is available to anyone — theoretically, at least.

A lot of American or European students might relate to this.
