    MOOC stands for Massive Open Online Course.

    A MOOC is a university course provided over the internet free of charge. Many high profile universities now publish courses online which are based on their campus-based curricula. These courses can be accessed anywhere and by anyone who has an Internet connection and a computer. They are “Massive” in the sense that thousands of students worldwide can be enrolled in the same course at the same time. Some MOOCs are scheduled with a set start and finish date, others are “on-demand” allowing students to enrol at any time. Both formats allow students to work at their own pace giving more flexibility than a traditional classroom-based course.
