‘Towards a European Perspective on Massive Open Online Courses’

Bert Kimura By Bert Kimura

The following is a brief description of “Special Issue: Towards a European Perspective on Massive Open Online Courses” (International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning, 16.6, 2015):

We are pleased to bring you this special issue of IRRODL, edited by guest editors Markus Deimann and Sebastian Vogt. Deimann and Vogt have chosen a timely topic for scrutiny, that of a European perspective of the past, present, and future state of MOOCs. (Dianne Conrad, IRRODL co-editor)

IRRODL was started by Terry Anderson at Athabasca University (“Canada’s Open University”) and, in my opinion, is one of the better (or best) academic OER publications. Dr. Anderson is a leading researcher in distance learning and has been at it for about 30 years.
