What's a MOOC?

Massive Open Online Courses, popularly known as MOOCs, are noncredit, student-interaction-based programs that provide educational access to the public at no cost. They are typically less immersive than credit courses you'd find at a university, offering more generalized content that's meant to provide you with a breadth of understanding across the subject matter. MOOCs feature instructor-driven content with a heavy emphasis on student participation. This student-to-student communication creates knowledge and discoveries that enrich the course with a social aspect and shared experiences.
