As massive open online courses, or MOOCs, catch on, the number of students registering is climbing by as much as 70% a year, and hallowed institutes that never offered them before — like Oxford University — are opening their doors virtually too. “MOOCs used to be seen as almost an extra-curricular activity. But even the book-centric Indian students are learning that it can be very enriching, personally and professionally, to attend a prestigious foreign university virtually,” says education consultant Karan Gupta. “It also helps expand the horizon when it comes to higher study options, as MOOCs allow students to opt for standalone courses in topics like game theory, antimicrobial resistance or 3D printing.”
