About Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)The advantage of these types of courses is it is easily accessible over the internet and anybody can participate in these courses from anywhere according to their suitability. Along with the various forms of course materials (audio, video, text), participants can engage in forum discussions with other students/faculties which help them to engross the course.
