What is difference between MOOC and online course?
#1
I see the word "MOOC" is often used for last time. But for me the difference is not clean. Online courses existent long time before. And any online course could be massive.
I don't see real sence in this new word.

MOOC is really massive. Some courses have 200 000 students.

Yes. Massive courses need special logic to work with students. A teacher can not work with each students individually.
