The authors explore a trend in modern education referred to as the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), analyze the main types of MOOCs as well as current projects involving MOOC, and examine the ways in which they are used to ensure openness in education. In addition, the authors discuss opportunities for developing a MOOC using LCMS and WIKI technologies, which allows for organising and performing students’ dynamic and open research activities, and describe one such actual application of the technologies.
