Information Technology Based Higher Education and Training ITHET 2013, UNESCO Chair on Mechatronics of Bogazici University, Istanbul, Antalya, Turkey, Keynote, Oct 14, 2013.

In this presentation I summarize the major elements of a massive open online course, with an emphasis on openness, then I outline and describe the gRSShopper application used to develop and deploy the cMOOCs we have run. The presentation as a result emphasizes the differences between CMOOCs and xMOOCs. Finally, I talk a bit about technologies that will impact the development of MOOCs in the future, such as personal learning, authentication, and the personal cloud.
