MOOCs and Open Education Around the World is a fascinating and promising new edited collection relevant to massive open online courses (MOOCs) and open education resources (OER).

Some massively open online courses are based on prerecorded video group discussions plus facilitated interaction or discussion forums. Some MOOC courses are an effort to respond to dramatic increases in the demand for elearning and training. MOOC courses are undeniably a significant change agent influencing technology-enhanced learning today. MOOCs and Open Education Around the World considers opportunities in distance learning online learning services, virtual learning activities and digital learning materials which are growing rapidly. This book considers dozens of critical advances in massively open online courses. This impressive book also addresses open education resources (OERs) and online education topics.
