About this book

This book focuses on the emerging phenomenon of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), which are changing the fundamental underpinning of educational systems worldwide and forcing educators and other stakeholders to re-think the way instruction is currently conducted. It examines the origins of MOOCs within the context of the open education movement, and reviews current policies, guidelines and initiatives to promote the use of ICT  in education through the development and use of open educational resources from international practices, including implementation and licensing issues. With a particular focus on new trends in MOOCs, the book explores the potential of this emerging paradigm, its rise and its impact on openness in education. Various new initiatives are also presented, including more global examples and those that are more geared to certain regional contexts. The book is intended as a stepping stone for both researchers and practitioners who are looking to approach MOOCs from a holistic perspective.

Reviews

“The collection provides an overview of the current state of the art and also serves as a milestone for researchers to envision the areas of research in OERs and MOOCs. … Viewed as a collection, practitioners and policy makers can definitely have an overview of the state of the art of OERs and MOOCs, whereas researchers can identify the research gaps in the area of online education and their impact for formulating new research proposals … .” (C. S. Arora, Computing Reviews, April, 2017)
