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?

This was one of the goals of knowledge management and now we have much better tools for this purpose.
