Abstract

Higher education continues to play a central role in countries’ overall development (economy, productivity, general educational levels). Developing countries have demonstrated great concern about access to higher education, and about achieving Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and UNESCO’s Education For All (EFA) goals by 2015. Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) – a relatively recent initiative to provide free University-level courses to millions of users via Internet, through several online platforms’ partnerships with Universities from around the world – were seen as an alternative path for offering access to higher education and learning, deviating from the one in traditional classrooms.The present report offers an up-to-date view on MOOCs in the context of developing countries’ perspectives, specifically Mexico and Thailand, from various players’ point of view.
