This page describes the term MOOC and what you can and can not create here on Wikiversity using the MOOC interface.

Process of creating MOOCs[edit source]

At first you should know what a "MOOC" is, in the context of the MOOC interface. A MOOC is an massive open online course with a topic. It is splitted up in one up to more lessons with learning goals. Each lesson is again divided into one or more units, that are the smallest workload we think of. Units do also have learning goals, but can also have additional resources. The hierarchy of lessons and their units represent the MOOC's structure.


  • Web Science MOOC
    • lesson Ethernet
      • unit Ethernet header
      • unit Collision detection
    • lesson Internet protocol

It is your task to create such a structure for your course. You can then create the MOOC in 5 simple steps and add the lessons and units you have identified. Read further if you are interested what you can define for each lesson and unit.

Lesson[edit source]

A lesson can only have learning goals. And the units it consists of.

A unit can have multiple information. Some are stored in the MOOC index along with the MOOC structure, some are stored on separate pages. Since the MOOC interface allows on-page edits, you do not need to worry about that. You do not need to browse these pages by yourself. It is just good to know.
