Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are online courses with open access through world wide web. Students taking part in such courses participate in online classes and discussions, make notes, and give test and assignments.

Over 450 MOOCs are presently available globally on a range of topics for students, according to Penn State Associate Professor of English Stuart Selber. Coursera and EdX are among some of the famous platforms. There are over 9,500,000 enrollments in Coursera from around 195 countries in 386 courses.

However, experts are debating about the impact of MOOCs on higher education.
