What is termed a 'MOOC' can vary considerably - this is iBerry's definition:

A Massive Open Online Course (MOOC):

  • - is open to all with unrestricted access to content (usually some registration and login procedure is required).
  • - is essentially free of charge (charges for optional certification, expert assessment etc may apply).
  • - provides for significant interaction between participants (often via online discussion forums but possibly blogs, social media etc).
  • - has definite start and end dates and is sequenced so that participants study the course elements together.

Listing of MOOC Providers and Course Listings

The following list covers the main MOOC platforms such as Coursera and FutureLearn where complete listings of courses supported by these platforms can be found. The list also covers other sites such as Class Central and MOOCtivity that provide lists and search facilities for just about any type of MOOC. There are also a number of sites that fall in between these categories providing information on online courses that, unlike MOOCs, may not be free or maybe termed 'self-paced' so there is no formal start and end to the course and participants do not tackle course material together and at the same time.
