What are Moocs?

MOOCs, or Massive Open Online Courses, are online classes that can be taken as individual courses, or as a series of courses in a program, with the goal being to provide the public with flexible and (mostly) free educational experiences.  These courses can be used to advance your career, learn new skills, or to gain knowledge in an area that you are interested in.
