  • What Is an Open Online Course? • “freely allowing people outside the university to view course materials and informally participate in the course” - Dr. David Wiley (open online course pioneer) • “While OERs are merely content, OOCs are live courses, which include direct participation of teachers and rich and valuable interaction among participants.” Fini, A. (2009). The technological dimension of a massive open online course: The case of the CCK08 course tools. International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning , 10(5). Retrieved May 27, 2011 from http://www.irrodl.org/index.php/irrodl/article/view/643/1402
