As explained in the Introduction, "By the time the first MOOC appeared, online education had been evolving slowly for nearly two decades." It is important to keep in mind that in 1993, Tim Berners-Lee, a British computer scientist then associated with CERN (the European Particle Physics Laboratory), introduced the World Wide Web. The Introduction then points out that "MOOCs were first introduced through a University of Manitoba course called 'Connectivism and Connective Knowledge' and the term was coined by Canadian University of Prince Edward Island's Dave Cormier. Widespread international interest in MOOCs began in 2011 when Stanford's Professor Sebastian Thrun's course 'Introduction to Artificial Intelligence' was offered in MOOC format through Stanford University. Anyone could take the class as long as they had an internet connection. Over 160,000 people enrolled in the free online class."
