As new digital forms of learning proliferate, there is an increasing need to better understand how people in different regions of the world are implementing massive open online courses, or MOOCs, and other forms of open education.

Ongoing e-learning developments related to both technology and pedagogy have pushed institutions and organizations to grapple with issues of accreditation, credentialing, quality standards, innovative assessment and learner motivation and attrition, among other areas of concern.

MOOCs and Open Education Around the World—co-edited by Thomas C. Reeves, professor emeritus in UGA’s College of Education—explores and illuminates unique implementations of MOOCs and open education across regions and nations.
