As MOOCs become popular, Knowledge finds out more aboutthe learners and how they move along with the curriculum. In recent times, the word MOOC has been floating around quite commonly. Well, there is a MOOC for almost every subject, if there are willing learners. Massive open online courses or MOOCs, are courses that participants can enrol for at their convenience, and study for at their convenience as well. Unfortunately, not all those who register for such an online course are able to complete the course and get a certificate. And that’s how the success is measured. According to Anant Agarwal, CEO, edX, a MOOC platform founded by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University in May 2012, while completion rate is an important measure, it represents only one segment of a diverse group of MOOC learners who are looking for access to education. EdX hosts a wide range of university-level courses in a variety of disciplines for a global audience at no charge.
