    • WHAT IS A MOOC? MASSIVE: Using the internet to connect on a global scale OPEN: It is open to everyone, no charge ONLINE: Not face to face COURSE : Learning units, covers single topics
    • WHAT I UNDERSTAND ABOUT MOOCS  The courses are usually 4 to 14 weeks in length  You don’t get credit only certificates  They are free to join  Open entry, don’t need requirements  Given by a couple of institutions as well as top universities  They are taught through a couple of short videos with student collaboration
    • WHAT I UNDERSTAND ABOUT MOOCS  Students will also submit papers and be given small quizzes  They offer access to online discussions and resources  Virtual Learning Environment is not the centre of the course.  MOOCs uses a variety of social media and online tools  It is Learner- centred.  MOOCs offer knowledge without borders which is a great advantage for many, and the absolute numbers are impressive. In fact there has been an exponential growth in the number of MOOC providers.
