BRAIN: Integrating MOOCs in Embedded Systems Blended Courses

The Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) phenomenon has been growing in popularity and importance in the last decade, receiving valuable recognition from renowned universities from all over the world. MOOC can be simply defined as an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web. In the latest issue of the BRAIN Journal, Răzvan Bogdan’s paper approaches a modality of integrating MOOCs into embedded systems higher education.

The academic field of Embedded Systems aims to enhance student’s understanding through various methods, however students find the concepts as being very monotonous and tend to avoid building practical solutions. In this paper, the author presents the introduction of MOOCs with no synchronization into the Embedded Systems courses at “Politehnica” University of Timișoara, Romania.
