The Application of MOOCs in the Classroom Teaching



MOOCs, short for “massive open online courses,” mark an important, possibly revolutionary, development in education. These courses are on line, free of charge, and open to anyone in the world who has a laptop and an Internet connection. MOOCs as a new way of teaching provides the teachers a new horizon and form to teach and think and also gives the students a platform to understand the knowledge and teaching through MOOCs.
