Global_MOOC_SurveyJoin our Global Survey on the Quality of MOOCs!

The Global MOOC Survey is launched! It is the first Global Survey on the Quality of Open Education and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) addressing three main target groups: MOOC learners, MOOC designers and MOOC facilitators. The main long-term goal is the improvement of future MOOCs by developing quality indicators and tools. The survey will foster it through the collection of design and learning experiences and their analysis and discussion afterwards. “We are very excited to facilitate the quality debate with all interested parties worldwide”, emphasises Christian M. Stracke from the Open University of the Netherlands and MOOC expert. The leading international associations and organizations are supporting the survey including three United Nations’ organizations. The Global MOOC Survey started now and is open until end of March 2017 to allow feedback from all interested parties. All findings from the scientific, independent and non-profit survey will be published and shared online.
