Massive Open Online Courses (Free): MOOC

Some exciting developments in online learning and education with the development of massive open online courses (MOOC).  

'A massive open online course (MOOC) is an online course aiming 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 TAs. MOOCs are a recent development in distance education.'[1]

Take a free class in Music, Film and Audio, Management, Genetics, Philosophy, or Robotics, and many more.

Then there are the sites Canvas and Coursera collating MOOCs.

All this caught my attention because the Doctor of Ministry I lead, in Leadership and Global Perspectives is available online for anyone to follow and take part in for free.
