Tiivistelmä

Open education and distance learning are not new pedagogical innovations. However, through the introduction of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), they have recently attracted a great deal of attention among educational establishments. MOOCs can be considered a threat to small universities, but, on the other hand, they can also be a means of providing opportunities to develop their core activities. The challenge is how universities will perceive this phenomenon and take advantage of the new chances it brings. This paper examines the utilization of MOOCs from several points of view. The focus is on degree courses and continuing education offered by universities, but in-house personnel training in companies is also discussed. The issue is how to find proper ways to utilize third-party MOOCs in these three domains. Based on our investigations, the paper introduces a preliminary model for exploiting MOOCs in the development of education and training programs.
