Dublin (Ireland) | The absence of admission restrictions can lead to huge numbers of participants. They can also be used free of charge. We are talking about so-called “Massive Open Online Courses” (MOOC), which are used in both higher education and adult education. In contrast to the users, the offering institutions and universities naturally incur fees for the technical provision and streaming of corresponding courses. According to the analysis “Massive Open Online Course Market Research Report by Component, by User Type – Global Forecast to 2025 – Cumulative Impact of COVID-19” by Research and Markets, there is an enormous market growth of 32.48 % per year on average until 2025. The growth can be attributed to the increased use of this teaching method. In line with this growth, the market volume is expected to increase from 4637.96 million US dollars in 2019 to 25,080.44 million US dollars in 2025.
For VET and in-company education and training, for example, this means that an increased transfer from science to practice is to be expected in the future. Anyone interested in more details on the exact development of MOOC courses in the fields of business management, computer science, programming, engineering, medicine or similar should take a look at the above analysis.
