Summary/Abstract: This paper examines the emergence and the potential consequences of MOOC in higher education. It describes MOOC as a disruptive innovation with much unused potential on the sub-program level of education (modules, nanocourses). The focus of the paper is the situation of followers after the MOOC innovation – and it takes a special look at small nations states, like Hungary. Several catching-up scenarios are drafted. The author considers MOOC to be an open-ended process rather than a stable phenomenon.
