A MOOC is an educational course which is delivered online and is open to anyone wishing to enrol. Typically, MOOCs are free although MOOC platforms are increasingly using a paid track to generate income. In these cases, there is usually an "Audit" option allowing users to gain free access to the course content although this doesn't usually include graded assignments or course certificates. In some cases, MOOCs may grant transferable college credit or lead to an accredited degree.
