USE OF WEB 2.0 AND WEB 3.0 IN DEVELOPING A MOOC PLATFORM

V. Mihaescu, R. Vasiu

Politehnica University Timisoara (ROMANIA)
The emergence of MOOCs has been compared with a tsunami and has been considered the most disruptive event in the education of the last decades. MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) are implemented in the vast majority of large and popular universities. Some of them opt for participating in existing platforms such as Coursera, edX, Udacity or FutureLearn, others develop their own independent or collaborative projects. Some of the MOOCs are connectivist (cMOOCs) and some are behaviourist (xMOOCs). Some MOOCs don't respect all of the letter of the acronym. Some MOOCs are developed for educational purposes, others for financial ones or even for marketing. However, all MOOCs are based on technologies, most of them either of web 2.0 type or web 3.0 type. This paper is proposing to analyze different web tools that are currently used in MOOCs, reviewing existing literature and including original suggestions and conclusions.
