What on earth is a MOOC?

A MOOC is a “Massive Open Online Course” bound to make all learning enthusiasts enthusiastic. It is about knowledge transfer through the internet by teachers of academic institutions. The courses are offered on sites such as the MOOC platform “Cursera” . The course language is mostly English, but courses in other languages are also offered. A typical course, designed for self-study, takes 5-10 weeks. And on top of that: for the time being MOOCs are still free of charge 🙂
