The decade of the MOOC: A timeline

It is a decade since Pappano famously described 2012 to as ‘the year of the MOOC’. To mark this milestone, Fereshte Goshtasbpour and I are putting together a special virtual collection at the Journal of Interactive Media in Education, bringing together and charting trends across the MOOC-focused articles which have been published in JIME over the past ten years.

As part of the introduction to the collection, we have been working on a timeline to try to map some of the major milestones and trends in the field. It’s quite a challenge to try to map out the major developments over a decade; the current version of the timeline is shown below – but what are we missing?

Clicking on the figure will open a larger version in Google Docs. Any comments would be greatly appreciated – thanks in advance! 🙂
