TOEFL Go Vans and MOOC's

With the rise in the number of test takers in India, Education Testing service (ETS), the organization which conducts the TOEFL exam (Test of English as a Foreign Language)  has launched a new concept –TOEFL vans. These vans went around in South India and were a one stop shop for all the students thinking about studying abroad. Armed with two professionals, they gave complete details about the exam, resources and the multiple free tools available to enhance the preparation.

The vans were also fitted with a GPS so that they can be tracked by the students and covered about 100 colleges in South India in about nine weeks. This helped the Indian students to dispel all their doubts related to studying abroad, encouraged more students to take this test and result in a better performance by the Indian students.

Massive Online Open Course(MOOC) has also been recently launched. The ETS has already completed three successful rounds of its Massive Online Open Course(MOOC).Developed by EdX, it is a six-week online course aiming to simplify the preparation for this exam. The six weeks are meticulously planned out. The first week will provide a general introduction followed by each week dedicated to each of the four skills being tested in the exam –Reading, Listening, Speaking and writing. Students will also be able to enter a discussion panel where they can share their tips and ask doubts with other test-takers all over the world. Sample papers, previous year test papers will also be provided along with video lectures and solutions of the papers.

This greatly benefitted the Indian students since India is one of the top five countries of the TOEFL test takers.Indian students also stand second in forming the majority of foreign students studying in the USA after China.

The MOOC completed its third round successfully in January this year after the first one being launched in the second week of June. The reason for the MOOC's popularity is that it's a free course and doesn't demand more than three hours a week. A number of coaching institutes have been mushrooming across the country for these exams since it a basic requirement and all candidates wishing to pursue studies abroad- Graduate or Postgraduate have to qualify this exam but they charge a hefty fee. Candidates can be stress-free while opting for the MOOCs since they are designed by the international test makers.

However, a few reports of the content being inadequate are doing the rounds. The content is of high quality by not sufficient for this exam is a common perception.However, views vary person to person and some people have reported the study material in the MOOC to be just adequate.
