Digital Entrepreneurship Education - The Role of MOOCs
Keywords:digital entrepreneurship, digital entrepreneurship education, massive open online course, mooc
Digital entrepreneurship has gained more attention in theory and practice in recent years. Among other forms of digital entrepreneurship education, MOOCs (mas-sive open online courses) are one of the strongest trends and influence the content and flow of teaching and learning. The paper contributes to a better understanding of the necessary skills, opportunities and risks arising from the use of MOOCs as a new way of teaching entrepreneurship. It empirically examines challenges and drivers for the use of MOOCs as a novel pedagogical concept. The results show that a lack of self-discipline to complete a MOOC and a lack of interaction with others are the main obstacles compared to lectures with compulsory univer-sity attendance. However, the results also show that MOOCs are flexible in time and space and can thus facilitate the accessibility of education, especially entre-preneurial education.
