  1. Ron,
    Please. As discussed in other forums. Every MOOC, whether xMOOC or cMOOC is an Internet-enabled social learning/engagement event. However, not all Internet-enabled events are necessarily MOOCs.

    EX: iTunes U & YouTubeEDU are Web-1.0 era video playbacks with no social interaction, no massive simultaneous enrollment, and no open content/delivery options.

    If you choose to generically refer to all canines as “dogs,” that is accurate. But you cannot arbitrarily refer to all dogs as “poodles.” That is inaccurate and misleading to those trying to learn about MOOCs, online courses, virtual conferences, webinars, other social learning formats or open education resources.

  2. MOOC simply, and ONLY, means massive open online course. It does not mean interactive nor free, although many are both. And not all include materials. YouTube Edu and iTunes U both offer entire course lectures. Of course, that’s not what all of their content is made up of.

    Thank you for the list. 🙂

  3. Thanks for this handy table! I’d really appreciate it if you would consider adding the search engine for online learning resources I have been working on

    edspire is a search engine for online learning resources which is totally free to users. It uses sophisticated algorithms to classify MOOCs, videos, OpenCourseWare, tutorials and screencasts and provides a set of tools to enable users to plan their learning journey including a wizard-style recommendation engine based on your learning background and interests. edspire is incubated by the Isis software incubator, part of Isis Innovation, the technology transfer company of the University of Oxford.

    If you have any questions please do contact me.

    Many Thanks,
