MOOCs (short for Massive Open Online Courses) are online courses designed for a large numbers of participants. They can be accessed by anyone who has an internet connection, from anywhere, are open to everyone without entry qualifications and offer a full/complete course experience and often for free.
The content of the MOOCs consisting of lectures, videos, and text can be accessed at any time and this provides flexibility to learners to engage based on their own personal schedules.
MOOCs make it easier for learners across the globe to work together on common goals, to meet and collaborate online, to share their understanding and experience and enables learners to learn by teaching.
