Producing non-credit MOOCs by using grants which cover costs has been the norm in many top universities.
But this model is unsustainable.
“My view is to modularize all of the MOOCs production for multiple purposes and dissemination channels”– explained to me by a visionary online learning manager.
That’s right. Modularize, repurpose and disseminate the learning content through multiple channels.
The focus is to design for revenue-generating professional programs.
Choose the right subjects and engaging instructors. Always produce with the learner in mind, following a specific business plan for every MOOC.
Let’s pursue a modular future.
