MOOC: a revolution in teaching? A European view

MOOC have emerged as a new way of massive teaching and learning, at world scale. Successful learners (10-20%) obtain a certification which raises the problem of the value of the diplomation.

This innovation must be understood in the socio-economic context of American universities. The motivation to establish a MOOC, in Europe, can not be the same as in the United States, because the socio-economic context, the cost of education, the role of the State to define the university strategy, are completely different.

MOOC are a great opportunity for European Universities but the socio-economic model is still to be fund.
