Webinar by Jingjing Lin, USI, June 11, 2015

With the growing popularity of MOOCs phenomenon, there emerged various for-profit and non-profit organisations providing platforms to host or offer MOOCs. To identify a list of MOOCs platforms for universities to consider, the results from the Google search engine, MOOC aggregator sites Class Central and MOOC List, blogs, together with other literature were combined. The target was to include the most widespread and prevalent platforms with English as the primary language. A total of 18 MOOC platforms were then included into the review and decision making process. Four categories as first-level attributes are: general attributes, course attributes, technology attributes, and partnership attributes. The total of 19 second-level attributes go under the first-level four categories. In this webinar, you will have an overview of 18 MOOC platforms under 19 attributes.
