The development of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) has grown as a global trend over the past year. In May, 2012,
HarvardUniversity and Massachusetts Institute of Technology(MIT) have announced to establish a foundation hand in hand. Both universities made effort to advance the launch of edX, an open source software for online learning platform. A world-wide audience is allowed to take open online courses, hand in assignments, take exams, as well as obtain a completion of certificate at no charge. The feedback from the learners is extremely positive.


In addition, the similar concept is applied to the launch of Coursera, which is founded by the professors from
StanfordUniversity, Dr. Andrew Ng and Dr. Daphne Koller. Everybody is available to take the online courses freely and learn the most up-to-date course content from the topping, Ivy League universities. More than 30 renowned universities such as California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Washington University, Duke University, and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology have already joined Coursera to offer about 200 MOOCs, which attract more than 2 million life-long learners and 7 million registrations.


The Ministry of Education and several universities in
Taiwan have voiced to promote the MOOC project. The workshop will focus on investigating the potential of MOOCs, the design and development of MOOCs, and the copyright issues applied on MOOCs. The workshop is especially designed for the instructional designers, professors, students and the related industry. This is a great opportunity to deeply understand what the MOOCs are about and why the trend has a great impact on education. The experts who are invited to deliver speeches in the related areas will share with us the prospect and trend of online learning.
