MOOCs Increasing Access to Free Education

Post-secondary education, or higher learning as some would call it, is merely a pipe dream for some people. The fees associated with enrolling in a university or college, including tuition, books and other student fees, are sometimes prohibitive. Not to mention the strict and varied schedules that must be followed in order to complete the courses.

The growing trend of massive open online courses (MOOCs) introduced in 2006 are changing that perception, offering many options completely free to students. MOOCs are online courses providing unlimited participation and an interactive user format, including forums providing interaction among students, professors and teaching assistants.
