Differences between MOOCs and St. Scholastica Online Courses
- MOOCs are pre-recorded courses with thousands of people enrolled in the same course, while CSS online classes sizes are small, averaging twenty to twenty-five students.
- MOOC participants have little to no interaction with the instructor and provide no support to the students enrolled. CSS online classes have an instructor who facilitates the course, is available to answer questions, and grades the assignments in the course.
- Student support services are not provided to MOOC participants. Student support services available to students enrolled in CSS online classes include library, tutoring, writing center and an academic advisor.
