What is a MOOC?

I have learnt a new acronym recently – MOOC, I had to ask –  what is a MOOC?

A MOOC is a massive open online course. The following video helps.

I am now participating in a MOOC about mlearning. I  have also done a bit more research on other free online courses that are available. I have been blown away by how many free courses are available on just about every topic imaginable. We really are lucky to have access to so much learning.

Stay tuned to see what else I learn about mlearning from my MOOC. I would love you to share with me any MOOCs you have participated in.
