The advancements in technology are accelerating the development and diffusion of new innovative e-learning solutions. The e-learning industry is growing and offering new opportunities for both formal and informal learning. Open Educational Resources (OER) movement has gained considerable attention recently as an attempt to provide digital materials that can be used, and repurposed for teaching and learning. OER are becoming very popular learning materials including full courses, textbooks, modules, syllabi, lectures, homework assignments that are freely available online for everyone to use. Today, more higher education institutions are introducing OER and more alternative options for learning available such as Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) which might be considered as repositories of open access content. There is a significant need for colleges and universities to examine and understand the disruptive potential of new educational technologies such as MOOCs. This paper will discuss the problems and issues related with MOOCs to provide possible solutions for leveraging the capacity and potential.
