MOOCs let us keep pace with rapidly changing world

Use of the internet to promote education has been going on several years but it didn't expand dramatically until 2012 when two professors from Stanford University - Andrew Ng and Daphne Koehler - launched Coursera. Overnight it became an international phenomenon. Last count from the website shows there are at least 76 Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) providers. The largest, Coursera, offers 1,853 courses followed by edX with 1,053 courses. I started my journey on learning from MOOCs in the same year. To date I have completed more than 100 of them, 93 percent from Coursera, the rest from edX.
