Dr. Maria Elizabeth Arlene U. Castel

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) is an educational breakthrough, an instrumental in manpower development and a change agent which offers innovative transformation globally. It seemed evident that MOOCs would remove obstacles related to geography, socioeconomic status, affordability, educational attainment, and gender. In the Philippines, the first-ever MOOC -Introduction to Mobile Application Development using the Android Platform- was offered by the University of the Philippines Open University (UPOU) in cooperation with wireless leader Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) in 2013. Through its official platform, MODEL (Massive Open Distance E-Learning). These MOOCs offered in the Philippines are usually made for college-level students. This study presents the current condition of MOOCs in the Philippines and the Filipinos & #039, receptivity to this novel learning experience and opportunity. The study was responded by interested 250 Filipinos here and abroad who are College graduates aging 20 years and above. The results of this study revealed that although there is a low participation rate of Filipinos in MOOCs, they are willing to partake in MOOC opportunities, provided that they have time to do so, because they strive for professional development.
