Abstract

The recent proliferation and publicity surrounding Massive Open Online Courses (or MOOCs), which are aimed at large-scale participation and open access via the web, should have others considering how they can capitalize on the freedom of education movement. This roundtable will focus on redefining the MOOC acronym in order to illuminate the local possibilities for community leaders, universities, and secondary teachers who are considering accessing or making accessible this global phenomenon for “backyard benefits.”
