Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) offer students free access to course content. Several colleges and universities are experimenting with them as a means to reach more students, and they continue to be a growing phenomenon within higher education. Is this a trend or is it the future of instruction? This webliography includes the following MOOC-related resources that will help provide the reader with a definition of MOOCs, resources for locating MOOCs, pedagogical resources, and additional resources for keeping up with MOOCs. This annotated webliography will also help to examine many interrelated questions concerning MOOCs, including: (1) What is a MOOC?; (2) How can you locate a MOOC?; (3) How are students using them?; (4) What are the factors that affect student participation in a MOOC?; (5) Why are MOOCs being created?; (6) What institutions are creating them?; (7) Can students receive credit for participating in a MOOC?; (8) What type of credential, if any, does a student receive for participating in a MOOC?; and (9) What have been the results for institutions offering MOOCs as a form of instruction?
