MOOCs and Open Education Around the World is an appealing and promising new edited collection relating to massive open online courses (MOOC) and open educational resources (OER). E-learning technology has rapidly grown in terms of interactivity and the capability to reach humans all around the world since the emergence of the Internet. The transformational technological impact of the Internet makes available forms of communication and interaction which are essential for online learning technology. There are scarcely any trends in distance learning technology over the past half-century that can match the sudden arrival of MOOC classes. It is now impossible to cover these MOOC classes with one definition because there are many different categories of MOOC courses. Some MOOCs are based on video seminars plus facilitated interaction or discussion forums. Some massively open online courses are a supply-side effort to meet dramatic increases in the demand for teaching and learning and online learning. These MOOC classes are surely a powerful change agent influencing education today. MOOCs and Open Education Around the World investigates the basis for understanding the unprecedented educational opportunities available to individual mentors academics, universities, and societies. This 2015 Routledge edited collection examines dozens of big advances in massively online courses (MOOC). This book also reviews open education resources and online education subjects.
