It is typically easier to apply for a MOOC-based degree compared to an online degree, which often requires students to submit a full application and take proficiency tests such as IELTS or the GRE for Master-level courses. Dhawal Shah, the founder of Class Central, a MOOC discovery platform, wrote on EdSurge that the application process for MOOC-based degree programmes is more open, as they are designed to operate at larger scale and can accept all students with the potential to be successful instead of limiting admission to a certain number of applications. Online degrees by universities are often subject to traditional admissions processes, but MOOC admission processes are more innovative.
