Dr. Ebba Ossiannilsson will discuss Beyond the MOOCs

SInce the MOOCs was launched back in 2008 by George Siemens and Stephen Downes, and the name MOOC coined by Dave Cormier we have seen a lot of development within the areas of MOOCs. In Europe already two eMOOCs Stakeholders Summits have been hold (2013 and 2013) which attracted an international audience. The European Commission emphasizes the development of MOOCs from HEIs and MOOCs are focused in their initiative Opening Up Education to boost innovation and digital skills in schools and universities.

MOOCs have raised increasingly in numbers in Europe, as well as in the rest of the world. We have also been seen new quality and business models for MOOCs.
