What is a MOOC ?
MOOCs are a digital learning tool originally from the USA, that stands for Massive Open Online Courses.
They were created in the early 2000s and used by major American universities, quickly gaining popularity thanks to captivating features such as innovative communication techniques (videos, webinars and podcasts), collaborative work between learners using forums, chats and wikis and an expansive process for monitoring and checking knowledge acquisition via self-assessment or peer- assessment.
A MOOC lasts for a predefined period, often several weeks, bringing together a community of learners from around the world.
Concretely, each user registers on a dedicated website, granting him/her access to the course: video contents, additional resources and a forum. The whole of it is available over a period of various months.
