This book highlights a particular moment in history when cultural, political, and economic forces came together to bring about the MOOC as a unique educational innovation.

The methodology undergirding this book combines critical discourse analysis of key documents and publications as well as empirical studies of MOOC-related issues, including studies of MOOC content delivery, the organizational system supporting the OCW/MOOC movement, and faculty labor concerns"--"@en ;
