"MOOC" stands for "massive open online course," and refers to lectures at prestigious universities or by noted professors around the world that can be viewed online, free of charge, by anyone, anywhere in the world. MOOCs are consequently attracting considerable attention inside and outside Japan as a new type of educational service. The most prominent examples are Coursera, which was instituted by professors at Stanford University, and edX, which was established mainly by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The JMOOC was established to promote Japanese-language MOOCs last autumn.
