MOOC stands for Massive Open Online Course. MOOCs are structured similarly to other online college or university courses—they have instructors, course materials, and start and end dates. But unlike traditional online courses, participation is free and open to anyone who is interested and has an Internet connection. MOOCs are designed for large-scale participation. Students do not need to be admitted to a university offering a MOOC in order to take the course, and are not required to pay for the MOOC.MOOCs are a recent development in the area of online learning. They are a new way of learning that takes full advantage of all the benefits of a digital world where global connections are possible and information is highly accessible.
