MOOQ is the European Alliance for Quality of Massive Open Online Courses (called MOOCs) as the main discussed OER type at the moment. The vision of MOOQ is to foster quality in OER and in particular in MOOCs leading to a new era of learning experiences. MOOQ’s mission is to develop a Quality Reference Framework for the adoption, the design, the delivery and the evaluation of MOOCs in order to empower MOOC providers for the benefit of the learners. Therefore MOOQ follows a mixed methods research approach combining literature reviews, the Global MOOC Quality Survey (n=625) for MOOC learners, designers and facilitators as well as 45 semi-structured interviews with MOOC providers, designers and facilitators. The main goal of MOOQ is the development and the integration of quality approaches, new pedagogies and organisational mechanisms into MOOCs with a strong focus on the learning processes, methodologies and assessments for OER in general. To enhance the unique digital market in Europe, MOOQ will lead to new generations of OER and MOOCs in close collaboration with all interested partners and stakeholders in Europe and beyond.
