I get asked the question "How would you create a MOOC in [pick a subject]" quite a bit. My response is, I wish we could think of online learning as going beyond subjects, to address entire domains or disciplines. So, instead of (say) a course in mathematics, a MOOC in aviation (which would include mathematics, but much more). As Steve Wheeler says, "the separation of the subjects seems increasingly anachronistic in our diverse, post modern, hyper-connected society."
