The Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) phenomenon has been around for over ten years now. Four MOOCs have come out of Macquarie and one is currently in production.
“Over 100,000 students have enrolled in the various Macquarie MOOCs, providing a terrific learning opportunity for all involved. We look forward to further exploring the possibilities.” – Professor Sherman Young
