What is a MOOC?

MOOC 101 – Short Version by David S. Krause

Wikipedia defines a MOOC as online course aimed at large-scale interactive participation and open access via the web. In addition to traditional course materials such as videos, readings, and problem sets, MOOCs provide interactive user forums that help build a community for the students, professors, and teaching assistants. MOOCs are a recent development in distance education.
An even shorter definition is that a MOOC is a course that is usually offered for free over the Internet to anyone.
