In this short paper we face the fast developing Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) phenomenon: college courses online, open and free of charge, which are experiencing a tumultuous development over the past two years. We present briefly the debate about the proposed pedagogical models, the key initiatives and the MOOC challenges to the established higher education institution from the point of view of student inclusion, organization and curricula accreditation.
