MOOCs and Open Education Around the World is an edifying and promising book related to massively open online courses (MOOC) and open education resources. Education has rapidly grown in terms of interactivity and the capacity to reach learners in all parts of the world since the emergence of the Internet. The transformative technological influence of the Internet makes available powerful forms of communication and interaction which are essential for online education technology. There are hardly any trends in digital learning over the past half-century that can match the sudden arrival of these MOOC classes. We can no longer cover MOOCs with one definition because there are many different categories of MOOC classes. Some MOOCs are based on recorded video conversations plus facilitated interaction or discussion forums. Some massive open online courses are an effort to meet dramatic increases in the demand for e-learning and education. These MOOCs are plainly a meaningful change agent influencing digital learning technology today. MOOCs and Open Education Around the World analyzes the depth and nature of changes which include openness, faculty professional development, quality assurance, student success, and corporate learning. This 2015 Routledge book investigates a lot of critical trends in massive online courses (MOOC). This impressive book also investigates open education resources (OER) and online education issues.
