The learning process is dramatically changing and it will certainly be nothing about typical lectures and taking shorthand in the future. Nowadays a student may choose WHAT, WHERE and WHEN one wants to study! Why not? Massive open online courses (MOOCs) enables us to study any subject for free, in a convenient time and tempo. The courses are offered by leading higher education organizations of the world, such as Stanford University, Harvard University, MIT and hundreds more. At our workshop, you will learn what MOOCs are available today, how to search them, which MOOCs TSU produces. Moreover you will have a unique chance to shoot your first online course.
