What is a MOOC?

Private Eye

This year I participated in my first MOOC. It was a wonderful learning experience for me, in a number of ways. I realise that many of you could also benefit from participating in a MOOC, but the major obstacle is quite simply the question: “What is a MOOC?” Hence, this video. After viewing the video, if you are ready to participate in a MOOC, there’s a MOOC getting ready to start around the topic of E-portfolios and Communities of Practice.
