New in the Lam Library: MOOCs in Business

MOOCs, or Massive Open Online Courses, are free courses offered over the web, accessible to anyone, anywhere. There are no formal application processes, no prerequisites and no formal academic credits. MOOCs provide instruction via tools like videos, computer and peer-graded homework, and quizzes and exams. Students often interact with peers in online discussion forums.
