The Business Model for MOOCs

Jenny Connected

What is Necessary and what is Contingent in Design for Massive Open Online Courses? However, there was one very interesting, topical and pertinent question, which was, What was the business model for the FSLT12 MOOC? It seems that many institutions think about business models in terms of how much money they can make from MOOCs and certainly Oxford Brookes is thinking of accrediting the MOOC and charging for assessment next year.
