Abstract

Entrepreneurship as a skill and process is increasingly being taught as a part of various university educational programmes. The literature is divided on the effectiveness of traditional methods to teach entrepreneurship.

The results suggest that the MOOC is a suitable platform to teach entrepreneurship as it provide tools to enable students׳ collaborative learning as well as improve individuals׳ affective key entrepreneurial aspects such as such opportunity recognition and resource acquisition.
