The Most Recent Development in Distance Education
Online courses aimed at large-scale interactive participation and open access via the web are fondly known as MOOCs. No relation to a bovine, the Massive Open Online Courses are free non-degree online courses with open unlimited global enrollment. Classes are available to anyone desiring to learn, regardless of current educational levels. Course work utilizes traditional materials such as videos, readings and problem sets and provides interactive user forums to build a community for students, professors, and teaching assistants.
