MOOCs - Massive Open Online Courses

Michael Gaebel

Over the past year, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have received a great deal of attention from the academic community and the media. The EUA Secretariat has followed the development of the MOOCs since the beginning of 2012, surveying discussion forums and publications, but also assessing the websites of MOOC providers and participating in several MOOCs in order to gain first-hand experience of this developing phenomenon. The issues have been discussed first at the EUA Board (Nov. 2012), and subsequently at the EUA Council (Istanbul, 25 January 2013).
