     Thailand Cyber University, "Thai MOOC," is able to announce the operation's success. There are 1.5 million enrollees in its courses, known as the Thailand Massive Open Online Course Platform – Thai MOOC – under the control of the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research, and Innovation.

One hundred four public and private universities developed all 589 courses, which have had 1.5 million enrollees, at no cost to them; notably, they can keep learning profiles and collect credits to transfer credits. So Thai MOOC is an online platform that answers both formal education and life-long learning. Persons interested in the course may register at https://lms.thaimooc.org.
