ABSTRACT
Overview of papers on enhancement of European Higher Education as presented during the Online, Open and Flexible Higher Education Conference in Rome, October 2016

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have been the main topic in the field of education for the last few years. Every year a number of organizations enter the MOOCs market. Newly entered organizations bring new winds in the field of MOOCs and change the strategies of previous MOOCs providers. A big part of organizations newly entering MOOCs market adapt the methods of MOOCs provision from other organizations who have successful experience in MOOCs provision, however, some of them create new ways to deliver MOOCs. For this reason, the research was performed in order to find out the present position and strategies of MOOCs providers in Lithuania and compare results with the European context. The research in Lithuania was initiated and carried out in 2015, the obtained results were compared with the results of research carried out in European countries. The aim of the paper is to at the present the results of the research on institutional MOOC strategies implemented in Lithuania.
