The reason for that is quite obvious, as such kind of acquiring knowledge is pretty convenient, accessible, and often provides qualitative and well-structured laconic education.

The professors who taught them in the universities also work for the massive open online courses’ services and read the lectures for everyone who signs up for their courses online.
Massive open online courses (MOOC) are internet classes with large-scale interactive participation and public access through the Internet, so learning content is available online to any person who wants to take a course with no limit on attendance. They are structured similar to traditional higher education courses (Martin 26), in which students watch lectures, read assigned material, participate in online discussions and forums and complete quizzes and tests on the course material. Nevertheless, MOOCs try to make the online education more effective than the traditional class room methods (Kolukuluri n. pag). Further claims have been made that short videos complement the optimal attention span of students and that discussion forums provide an adequate replacement of direct teacher–student interactions, which would be considered as normal for a class delivered on campus (Glance 5). MOOCs are typically provided by higher education institutions, often in partnership with “organizers” such as Coursera, edX and Udacity, though some MOOCs are being offered directly by college or university (as Stanford does).
The MOOCs’ constructions are rather similar from source to source, but let’s consider the structure of Coursera courses as an example. In the description of each course the level of required previous knowledge for its successful mastering is indicated. Many courses are available for the beginners, while other courses require the

The objectives of this study are to conduct a literature review of Blackboard and its position in virtual learning environments; to conduct a survey among students at UNSW in order to measure the overall effectiveness of current Blackboard’s features; to determine the best and worst features of Blackboard; to make recommendations on improvements that can be made to enhance the effectiveness of Blackboard as an online education tool.

With the advent of technology education has also been integrated with technology. Previously it was seen that education was achieved through written forms of pen and pencil.
Accorduing to the paper professors with experience of teaching online had more positivity regarding the issue, although forty eight percent of them still believed that face-to-face teaching was better than online course. The full time residential model that ha been adopted across the world for higher education is becoming too expensive for most of the world’s population. These viewpoints on online learning will be the subject of this paper.
It creates opportunities for those that for one reason or the other cannot attend or access the traditional method of education. At least 6.1 million college students are presently taking online courses, and this number grows by approximately 30% each year (Appana, 2008).
Virtual Learning Environment or VLE have multiplied today to include Computer Assisted Instruction, Computer Based Training, Computer Managed Instruction, Integrated Learning System, Learning Management System, Technology Based Learning, Technology Enhanced Learning, Web Based Training, and On Demand Training.
They then offer possible measures to counter plagiarism to teachers like through better pedagogy or policies. Even the latest scholarly books about plagiarism today follow the same conventions. However, there are
In this type of communication exchange, the Internet was the main medium working between computers besides facilitating the process of communication between the users. However, with the multiple innovations and changes in the field of ICT, the
According to the discussion, Online Education, much of the content dealing with online education has placed its focus on how online learner outcomes can improve, and strategies to achieve the improvement. Other studies have focused on how traditional classroom learning would turn into an online class.
