More high school students are benefiting from MOOC enrollments
On Nov. 7, Florida lawmakers got schooled on massive open online courses, or MOOCs.

MOOCs are virtual classes that allow unlimited enrollment.
Students watch recorded lectures and move through the material at their own pace. They typically have little or no interaction with the instructor.
