MOOCs and Open Education Around the World is an interesting and promising new edited collection related to massively open online courses (MOOCs) and open educational resources (OERs). Online education has swiftly evolved in terms of interactivity and the ability to reach humans all over the world since the emergence of the Internet. The transformative technological impact of the information superhighway makes possible powerful kinds of communication and interaction which are essential for learning technology. There are not many trends in distance learning technology over the past half-century that can match the sudden arrival of these MOOC classes. We can no longer cover massively open online courses with one definition because there are many different categories of MOOC classes. Some MOOCs are based on video conversations plus facilitated interaction or discussion forums. Some MOOC classes are a supply-side effort to meet increases in the demand for erudition and distance learning. These massive open courses are obviously a meaningful change agent influencing digital learning technology today. MOOCs and Open Education investigates the basis for understanding the unprecedented educational opportunities available to individual educational scholars academics, universities, and societies. This Routledge edited collection researches a lot of meaningful historical trends in massive open online courses.
