Despite MOOCs are usually designed as distance courses, they could also represent a great support to improve classroom teaching. Educators at TU Delft, one of the world-leading MOOCs provider with over 2 million learners, are encouraged to use MOOCs in campus education, mostly in a blended model. As an example, one of the authors of the MOOC “Introduction to Water and Climate”, launched in 2015, found additional MOOCs from other universities which he considered useful to support his on-campus teaching and started using them using a flipped-classroom approach.
