"Our findings raise concerns that MOOCs and similar approaches to online learning can exacerbate rather than reduce disparities in educational outcomes related to socioeconomic status."

Not surprising, but a good reminder to dreamers.

Toward a level playing field? Do free learning resources benefit the disadvantaged and decrease gaps between rich and poor? Hansen and Reich studied the relationships between socioeconomic status (SES) and enrollment in and completion of free Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) offered by Harvard and MIT. Students from low-SES backgrounds were less likely to enroll in MOOCs and earn a certificate than their high-SES peers. Thus, although there ar...

Please note that a full professor position in mathematics (analysis) is currently open at the university of Luxembourg. "Examples of research directions are geometric analysis, non-commutative harmonic analysis, PDEs on manifolds, index theory (including analytic aspects of non-commutative geometry), microlocal methods."

The position is quite attractive by international standards and might well interest some mathematicians already holding a full position at another institution.

Please forward to any potential candidate.

Another source of very good students -- it's already known of course, but now it's measured.
