António Maneira's curator insight, June 18, 2013 5:26 AM

That's it!

There is no strong apparent reason for MOOCs to be less valid then face-to-face courses.

It is an e-learning model for great numbers that in most cases attracts lots of people which is great to researchers as it increase significance of quantitative research studies.

What Are MOOCs Anyway and Should You Consider Moocing? | Educational Technology and Change Journal

"If we can get past the magic of “massive” and “free,” we begin to see Coursera/edX-type MOOCs for what they really are — online courses, no different from the ones your college or university is offering right now. Open up registration to anyone anywhere, don’t charge a fee, and you’re MOOCing."
