The (initial) philosophy of MOOCs is to open up quality higher education to a wider audience. As such, MOOCs are an important tool to achieve Goal 4 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This panel session will address the possibilities of how MOOCs can facilitate equality and inclusion and in some cases, specifically target increased social mobility and broader access to the critical thinking, multi-cultural and digital skills necessary for today’s workforce. The panel will discuss the promises behind MOOCs in general, address the opportunities they offer for society, and examine how they may impact society and those people who are (potentially) left behind.
