Massive Open Online Courses, or MOOCs, such as Coursera, are transforming the way people learn across the world. People of all ages and interests can sign up to study everything from archaeology to computing with professors from universities around the world such as Harvard, Yale, IIT-Delhi , Tel Aviv Univeristy and more. The courses are structured like the ones in the physical classroom with free reading material and deadlines for assignments. The courses do not carry credit and students are expected to follow an ‘honour code’ and avoid cheating and plagiarism. Now, these free online distance educators are showing potential to change the way students complete their courses in physical universities.
