Massive Open Online Course

As I ever told you in one of my post, recently I've been taking several course on the internet. It is called a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). In addition to traditional course materials such as videos, readings, and problem sets, MOOCs provide interactive user forums that help build a community for students, professors, and teaching assistants (TAs). MOOCs are a recent development in distance education which began to emerge in 2012. I'm really grateful to live in an era where I can take online classes from top universities in the world for free.

There are several website for MOOC in this world, for example Coursera and UDACITY. But I have only took course from edX. Here are some pictures from edX website
