Airing on Monday, March 2, 2015: Massive Open Online Courses or MOOCs are on today's agenda at an annual conference hosted by Coursera, a major online course provider. They will likely discuss the growth of corporate MOOCs. We find out if MOOCs have become less about transforming higher education and more about helping already educated workers get ahead and boosting the company’s bottom line? Next up is Alison Griswold, staff writer at Slate, to talk about Venmo’s security problems. And then we are joined by Ted Rappaport, director of NYU WIRELESS - he speaks with us about the development of 5G technology and wireless internet cell phone plans.
