EDUCATION: How do DENTISTS learn online? Lessons learned from the first MOOC in Implant Dentistry


Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have been used in higher education for more than ten years, yet their introduction in the teaching of clinical disciplines has been very slow.



In October 2016 HKU introduced the first MOOC in Implant Dentistry at Coursera. The course has run several times since then and enrolled more than 30,000 learners.
