The use of online tools in facilitating the professional learning of teachers has increased greatly, due, in part, to the recent rise of MOOCs in education. Researchers identify benefits, problems, and barriers in how technology is currently used to support professional learning. MOOCs reach large numbers of professionals, show promise for those who are intrinsically motivated, and have potential to integrate theoretical and practical knowledge, however ineffectiveness of peer assessment methods and low persistence rates pose significant challenges. The SOOC model is designed as an online alternative to the MOOC. Rationale and components of the SOOC, and outcomes from one SOOC that focused on Universal Design for Learning, provide a vision for more interactive, supportive, and participatory online professional learning in education. Recommendations for further SOOC development are provided.
