Organizing MOOC’s is a current marketing trend in the educational sector to showcase the existing resources and testing your course for improvements. MOOCs are also helpful in providing access to affordable quality higher education.
In developed countries, there are a lot of reports available for getting the most out of the MOOC courses. With very few exceptions, many of the reports on MOOCs already published do not refer to the interest and experience of developing countries, although we are witnessing important initiatives in more and more countries around the world.
UNESCO along with COL (Commonwealth of Learning) have published a new resource book – “Making Sense of MOOCs: A Guide for Policy Makers in Developing Countries”.
The Guide is designed to raise general awareness amongst policy makers in developing countries as to how Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) might address their concerns and priorities, particularly in terms of access to affordable quality higher education and preparation of secondary school leavers for academic as well as vocational education and training.
