A MOOC is a M assive O pen O nline C ourse. It is a gathering of participants, of people willing to jointly exchange knowledge and experiences for each of them to build upon. As such it is within the hands of the participants and organizers of a MOOC to change it to their needs. This allows them to use the information and to construct their own ideas or projects. A MOOC is by itself a non-defined pedagogical format to organize learning/teaching/training on a specific topic in a more informal collaborative way. This guide is meant to be a useful template that can be molded, and build upon as our joint knowledge on MOOC’s and new pedagogies grow.
A massive open online course ( MOOC ) is an online course aiming at large-scale interactive participation and open access via the web . In addition to traditional course materials such as videos, readings, and problem sets, MOOCs provide interactive user forums that help build a community for the students, professors, and TAs. MOOCs are a recent development in distance education and often use open educational resources . Typically they do not offer academic credit or charge tuition fees. Only about 10% of the tens of thousands of students who may sign up complete the course. [ 1 ]
