The global market for MOOCs alone, which was valued at €3.5 billion in 2018, is predicted to reach around €20 billion by 2023 (MOOC Market, 2019). The future size of the largely “untapped” borderless skills market, which can be serviced by online and blended approaches, will be in excess of one billion students (Australian International Education 2025 Roadmap, 2016).
