Taking a look at the massive open online course (MOOC): My experience with edX
On several occasions over the past few years, I’ve put my prior experience as an English teacher and tutor to work, developing basic online course content for clients using learning management tools such as Moodle and LearnDash. This teaching and online course development experience, paired with two years of taking online courses through a community college, has helped shape my opinions concerning online learning. But what of these massive open online courses (MOOCs) that have been gaining in popularity? How do they compare to taking a formal online course through a university of community college? What platforms do they use, and how is the material presented?
I decided to give edX a try for my first MOOC experience.
