While lectures have been accessible online for years, the MOOC has taken online auditing a step further. With immersive tools and online and offline study groups, enrolling in a MOOC allows you to take a class from any discipline for free.
Massive Open Online Courses allow students from anywhere in the world to study science, philosophy, history, photography, math, medicine and other disciplines without physically auditing a class. Unlike previous online study available, these courses includes quizzes and applications that will ensure that you're learning and able to apply the course content. Not only do MOOCs offer certificates that represent what you've learned, but they also allow you to learn from leaders in various fields. Stanford and MIT, as well as other notable institutions, are particularly involved in offering computer science studies so that even those in the farthest corners of the world can learn the global language of computers.
