Is it best to learn a language autonomously or attend classes? The Museum of Knowledge and many other language learning providers offer alternative means to learn a language that students from around the world can access.
The arrival of MOOCs (massive open online courses)
Self-learning has become increasingly popular since 2012 with the arrival of MOOCs (massive open online courses). The Museum of Knowledge, a virtual museum dedicated to language learning offers MOOCs to students who wish to learn a language autonomously. MOOCs are defined as online courses that are available to anyone and most importantly to vast numbers of people. There really is no limit in terms of accessibility as there are no restrictions on classroom sizes and teacher availability. Easy to access online courses ensure that location and time are no longer a hindrance.
Reducing the barrier to education and continuous learning
The barrier to learning and access to education and continuous learning is greatly reduced thanks to MOOCs such as those offered at the Museum of Knowledge. MOOCs are not always free but they are often attractively priced, once again enabling students from around the world to access a generous number of online language courses whilst improving their potential for career progression. Anyone can participate in a Museum of Knowledge online language course as long as they have the will and determination to succeed. These factors of accessibility of both intermediate language courses and advanced business language courses offer education to as wide an audience as possible.
Providing flexibility and wider coverage to students who wish to learn a language
The other benefits of MOOCs offered by the Museum of Knowledge include flexibility and coverage. To produce good quality language learning materials is another extremely high expense and the flexibility of being able to upload materials online that can be accessed by students from around the world is priceless.
