Find out more about this illuminating new book MOOCs and Open Education

MOOCs and Open Education Around the World is a thought-provoking and promising edited collection about massive open online courses (MOOCs) and open educational resources (OERs). E-learning technology has quickly expanded in terms of interactivity and the ability to reach participants in all parts of the world since the emergence of the Internet. The life-changing technological influence of the Internet makes possible powerful kinds of communication and interaction which are essential for digital learning. There are not many trends in blended learning technology over the past few decades that can match the sudden arrival of these MOOC courses. It has become impossible to cover MOOC classes with one definition because there are many different categories of massively open online courses. Some MOOC classes are based on video group discussions plus facilitated interaction or discussion forums. Some massive open online courses are a supply-side answer to recent increases in the demand for tutoring and online learning. These massive open online courses are undoubtedly becoming a significant catalyst for innovations in distance learning.

MOOCs and Open Education studies the depth and nature of changes which include openness, faculty professional development, quality assurance, student success, and corporate learning. This Routledge Chapman & Hall book explores numerous major changes in massively open online courses (MOOC). This compelling new book also explores open education resources (OERs) and online education subjects. The front matter of this book includes Forward #2 by Fred Mulder which is titled “Open(ing up) Education for All...Boosted by MOOCs”. The first part of this book is about “MOOCs and Open Education: Historical and Critical Reflections” and includes Chapter #1 by David Wiley which is titled “The MOOC Misstep and the Open Education Infrastructure”. The second part of this book includes Chapter #5. For more details about this Routledge Chapman & Hall edited collection see this open educational resources website.
