Abstract

In recent years, the Moroccan education system has suffered from shortcomings linked mainly to structural problems and the lack of an integrated vision. Higher education is not exempt from this situation. The situation is very worrying in educational establishments, particularly those with open access, which house almost 80% of the students (large number of students, lack of guidance, lack of resources, low staffing levels, etc.).Faced with these observations, it was necessary to look for innovative alternatives that would allow for efficient and democratic education, encompassing quality, reliability, free access and accessibility to all social strata. This solution resulted in the design and production, in collaboration with the e-Learning Center of Mohammed V University in Rabat, between November 2013 and September 2014, of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) aimed at the general public. These were the MOOC Accounting, General Fundamentals (3 editions), MOOC Accounting for Current Operations (one edition) and a SPOC (Small Private Online Course) for students of the Mohammed V University of Rabat.  The aim of this paper is to present our experience in this area.
