NYIT Office of the President | Report from the ad hoc MOOC Committee


MOOCs, or Massive Open Online Courses, place all materials and practices used in a traditional college class (including video lectures, reading assignments, tests, writing assignments, and interaction between students) online. What distinguishes a MOOC from more traditional online courses is that a MOOC is open to anyone who wants to enroll and, in most instances, is offered free. This is a short report from the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) MOOC Committee.
