Online Learning And Teaching: Teachers Are Critical To Students' Success +eLearning Industry 

As another MOOC comes to a close, I have been thinking about the impact of technology on teaching and learning. Back in the early days of my online learning journey, teachers were afraid that moving education efforts online would eliminate the need for teachers. Some professors were hesitant to "teach online" because they felt they were teaching themselves out of a job, somehow proving that they were nothing more than grading machines and forum monitors. Some online instructors actually did nothing more than that and kept their jobs, which only made other teachers more fearful of the trend to move classes online.
