If you're a teacher with an interest in e-learning, you're probably familiar with the word MOOC, which stands for 'Massive Open Online Course'. A couple of years ago MOOCs were being tipped to revolutionize the world of higher education. That hasn't happened yet, but it does look like MOOCs are here to stay.
If you are interested in finding out more about MOOCs while improving your English, here's your chance. The British Council has partnered with Futurelearn to develop its first MOOC, Exploring English: language and culture. It is free for the public, and the next six-week course starts today (2 February). You can sign up here. And you can read an interview with Chris Cavey, lead educator for the MOOC at the British Council, here.
