Because the single acronym of MOOC (Massive Online Open Course) refers to many different realities, we need to accurately describe a MOOC.
In this context, we propose to build a description framework for MOOCs with the aim of complementing a typology of MOOCs.
We have first presented different attempts to classify MOOCs. Next, we show how they are still confusing. Then, we apply some typologies, which were efficient for Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL).
For the description framework, we have gathered properties that describe MOOCs. Then, in an abduction approach, we have structured them in eight dimensions. We have also proposed an initial typology that uses simple and concrete name for types.
