Online courses for professional development
Over the last few years, online training has been revolutionised by MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses). In brief, a MOOC is an online course that is usually available free of charge to an unlimited number of participants. MOOCs are structured and timetabled, but also enable self-paced and self-directed professional development. The duration and number of activities vary from course to course. Although the courses themselves are usually free, some course providers may charge a fee for the official certification. The required weekly commitment is usually between 2 and 6 hours: teachers can enhance their practice even with 15 minutes per day!
