  • 8. 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.
