    Abstract

    In today’s Higher Education environment, when educators are talking about disruptive innovation, they are usually talking about MOOCs. The term MOOC was first used in 2008. MOOCs are a web-based form of distance education. One of the recent news articles is about an American university now offering a Master’s Degree in Computer Science through a series of MOOCs for just over AUS$7,000. This article Mulls-Over Outthere Curriculum (MOOCing about MOOCs). The article presents distinctive features of MOOCs, reasons why MOOCs have created such a fuss, problems with MOOCs, and the implications for teachers and teaching.
