MOOCs and Open Education is an interesting and promising book about massively open online courses (MOOCs) and open educational resources. Online learning technology has rapidly developed in terms of interactivity and the capacity to reach participants all around the world since the emergence of the Internet. The life-changing technological influence of the information superhighway makes possible powerful kinds of communication and interaction which are essential for learning technology. There are few trends in distance learning technology over the past half-century that can match the sudden arrival of MOOC classes. We can no longer cover these MOOC classes with one definition because there are many different categories of massively open online courses. Some massive open online courses are based on video group discussions plus facilitated interaction or discussion forums. Some MOOC courses are in response to increases in the demand for elearning and learning. These massive open courses are unmistakably becoming a relevant catalyst for innovations in elearning. MOOCs and Open Education considers the potential of distance learning to provide access to new opportunities. This Routledge Chapman & Hall book addresses quite a few key evolvements in massively open online courses (MOOC). This appealing new book also studies open education and online education subjects.
