ABSTRACT
The Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) Market was valued at USD 5.16 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 21.14 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 29% over the forecast period 2020 - 2025. Advances in information and communication technologies are prompting the educators and learners to move past the constraints of time, space, and environment. While a traditional classroom education is well-known, learning systems outside the classroom, especially those enhanced through technology, are still being discussed.

- Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) represent the final stage of current technological innovations in distance education, as these offer open educational resources to students all around the world. MOOCs are designed to be scalable to large online masses with free participation and without any formal requirements, and provide millions of individuals, around the world, the opportunity to learn through hundreds of public and private universities or organizations worldwide.
- Some of the major reasons behind MOOCs losing popularity are questionable course quality, high dropout rate, unavailable course credits, ineffective assessments, complex copyright, and limited hardware.
- With the required amount of financial resources at their counters, MOOCs companies are expected to reform and develop more apprenticeship-inclined course materials that can be used in a more blended online format, rather than fully online formats.
