Technavio€™s market research analysts predict the global MOOC market to grow at a CAGR of over 46% from 2015 to 2019. This research report considers revenues generated through platform licensing, course certifications, examinations, tutoring, and other personalized student services.

Among the various e-learning methodologies, learning through MOOCs is gaining momentum across the globe because of its ability to offer education irrespective of geographical boundaries and different time frames. Continuous innovation in e-learning tools, flexible delivery methods, and the availability of a variety of online courses offered by the various vendors in the market have significantly increased the dependency of individuals as well as corporates on MOOC tools.

Origin of the MOOCs concept and its rapid adoption

The concept of MOOCs was brought about to engage participants in learning by getting linked to a series of computers and listening to and discussing topics. The MOOC concept was first developed in 2008 by Dave Cormier to give life to Siemens and Downes' concept of €˜Connectivism and Connective Knowledge€™ by providing free online courses with no credits to be gained. This structure is known as the cMOOC.

Many organizations are adopting MOOCs to offer employees online training, reduce costs, and increase employee productivity. Also, factors such as continuous innovation in terms of cutting edge delivery methods using smart devices contributes to the growth of this market. Thanks to these encouraging developments, the global MOOCs market is predicted to experience substantial growth in emerging economies over the next four years.
