  •  
    "The purpose of this document is two-fold:
    - to offer an online history of the development of the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)
    - to use that history to describe major elements of a MOOC

    Each chapter of this guide looks at one of the first MOOCs and some early influences. It contains these parts:
    - a description of the MOOC, what it did, and what was learned
    - a description of the element of MOOC theory learned in the offering of the course
    - practical tools that can be used to develop that aspect of a MOOC
    - practical tips on how to be successful

The University of Illinois at Springfield announced a new not-for-credit MOOC devoted to examining the state of online education and where e-learning is heading. Nearly 500 people from two dozen countries have registered so far, with 1,000 expected to sign up by the time the course begins next Monday. (...)
