MOOCs' Next Phase:
The Urgent Need for a
Credible Global System of
MOOCs' Verified Credentials Recognition and
Academic Credit Transferability
Regardless of MOOC Provider
While scholars, administrators, the media, politicians, wall street, and many others are involved in deep and philosophical discussions on the impact and value of Massive Open Online Courses - This site is not.
Singular objective here is to provide a simple central directory of existing free Massive Open Online Courses available in K-12, Higher Education and Other areas for students, parents, teachers, counselors, tutors, military & their families, working adults, the unemployed, retirees, and others.
Regardless of your personal opinion on the value of these Massive Open Online Courses, the current reality for many low income, and underserved student populations in the US, and globally is that these free open courses from some of the world's leading experts is a partial win of the "Educational Access Lottery".
Partial because winning the full educational access lottery would require adding free high speed internet access, personalized MOOC learner experience, free online MOOC tutoring, secure free access to learner's MOOC course/skills portfolio, locally affordable MOOCs credentials/skills certification, transferable academic credit for their MOOCs, MOOC-related online internships with potential employers, and MOOC performance-based job placement opportunities with global industry partners.
With the help of site visitors like yourself, we hope to continue updating this directory with information on new global providers.
