Lately, the globalization and massification of higher education offer
involved more and more e-learning techniques inside universities. The
article brings a perspective on our analyses of different trends in
online education, especially MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses). Our
research raised some questions, which are answered in this article, such
as: What are the most important players/MOOCs? How can educational video
content be classified? We analyse the technological particularities of
MOOCs and focus more on what we think to be one of the main pillars of
e-learning, the video lectures, offering our findings, together with
recommendations for future MOOC creators.
