About This Book

During the last decade, our society is witnessing anauthentic revolution that, in a dizzying manner, has deeply influenced, modified, and transformed the way of life of human beings. This constant andunstoppable revolution is transmuting all areas of our life: social, cultural, personal, labor, economic, and training. This new society is characterized by ahigh generation of knowledge and the constant and fluid processing ofinformation.

In this macro-context, the MOOC phenomenon emerged. MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) courses are based on the principles of massive, free access to all materials and resources offered online. This new didactic path can be constituted in an innovative techno-social tendency, especially oriented in the panorama of Higher Education, to stimulate university improvement, to open opportunities at the same time for education and training, and, to shift universities towards a new business model. In addition to being an entry point for the popularization of science and knowledge, the future possibilities are enormous and are being studied in all their various dimensions. Many initiatives as a result have been developed to implement this new form of education. MOOC Courses and the Future of Higher Education presents the latest research theories and current examples of MOOC courses practices in Higher Education. The chapters represent an extensive assortment of interpretations and practice examples of MOOC courses, across areas as varied as teaching methodologies, instructional innovations, educational technology, etc. This work is structured in three sections, the first one covers the university institution in the knowledge society, the second analyzes the MOOC training proposals, and the third discusses the future role of MOOCs. Technical topics discussed in the book include:

  • The Virtualization of Teaching in Higher Education
