How do these MOOCs or free online courses work?
MOOCs are designed for an online audience, teaching primarily through short (5-20 min.) pre recorded video lectures, that you watch on weekly schedule when convenient for you. They also have student discussion forums, homework/assignments, and online quizzes or exams.
The lectures were paced "just right" and were uncomplicated in structure. It was short and I would have loved to learn more, though the content delivered was complete in and of itself. If I had the time and money I'd be first in line to complete the full course!
