The appearance of these massive open online courses (MOOCs) has been a very hot topic in the world of higher education – they are free to join and usually have cohorts of tens of thousands with large dropout rates, minimal tutor contact and no formal recognition for completion. However, they also provide access to university-level material for free with a paced structure, peer assessment and (usually) lively forums for discussion. You can see from the list the university’s that are running these courses – most are either on the US Coursera site or the UK Future Learn platform (their versions of “Blackboard”).
