The acronym stands for Massive Open Online Course. MOOCs are open online courses which can accommodate an unlimited number of participants. MOOCs are typically available for a specific period (e.g., one academic term or year), during which students can participate in the course flexibly according to their own schedule.
To take a MOOC, start by logging in to the online learning environment of the course. The study fee for the Open University will usually only be required if you want credits to be registered for your completed course. More information about study practices is available in the Instructions for Students: MOOCs
