“A good educational system should have three purposes: it should provide all who want to learn with access to available resources at any time in their lives; empower all who want to share what they know and to find those who want to learn it from them; and, furnish all who want to present an issue to the public with the opportunity to make their challenge known.” —Ivan Illich Author, Deschooling Society (1971).Education plays an increasingly critical role in ensuring sustainable human resource development. To prepare qualified employees that correspond to emerging markets demand we should keep developing not only urban students but also focus on rural areas, and start implementing innovative technology tools in educating rural students to improve agricultural education system.Properly harnessed innovative tools can be the fuel that propels economies to new and greater heights. We now accept the fact that learning is a lifelong process of keeping abreast of change and the most pressing task is to teach people how to learn, how to learn using innovative tools and keep updated, acquire employability skills responding to emerging market demands.One of the methods to deliver e-learning, distance learning is “A massive open online course (MOOC) online aimed at large-scale participation and open access via the web.Key features of MOOC:
- Open access. MOOC participants do not need to be a registered student in a school to "take" a MOOC, and are not required to pay a fee.
- Scalability. Many traditional courses depend upon a small ratio of students to teacher, but the "massive" in MOOC suggests that the course is designed to support an indefinite number of participants.
