This book situates Massive Open Online Courses and open learning within a broader educational, economic and social context. It raises questions regarding whether Massive Open Online Courses effectively address demands to open up access to education by triggering a new education order, or merely represent reactionary and unimaginative responses to those demands. It offers a fresh perspective on how we conceptualise learners and learning, teachers and teaching, accreditation and quality, and how these dimensions fit within the emerging landscape of new forms of open learning.

"A strength of this book is that Littlejohn and Hood do not simply provide an informed critique of the narrative of disruption and point to opportunities that have so far been missed. They use their detailed knowledge, experience, and research to suggest ways in which changes could be made at all levels." (Rebecca Ferguson, Postdigital Science and Education, Vol. 1, 2019)
