Learn more about this exciting new book MOOCs and Open Education
MOOCs and Open Education is an engaging and promising new book having to do with massively open online courses (MOOCs) and open education resources (OERs). Electronic educational technology has swiftly advanced in terms of interactivity and the capacity to reach humans all around the world since the emergence of the Internet. The transformational technological influence of the Internet makes available forms of communication and interaction which are essential for online education. There are hardly any trends in online learning technology over the past few decades that can match the sudden arrival of MOOC courses. We can no longer cover massively open online courses with one definition because there are many different categories of MOOC classes. Some massive open online courses are based on prerecorded video conversations plus facilitated interaction or discussion forums. Some MOOC courses are a supply-side effort to meet decades-long increases in the demand for instruction and elearning. These MOOC classes are incontestably a meaningful change agent influencing digital elearning technology today.
