Beyond MOOCs: Sustainable online learning in institutions

Li Yuan, Stephen Powell, Bill Olivier, Chicago Daily Herald, Jan 22, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Three themes emerge from recent MOOC experiments, write the authors:

  • Openness – new approaches to online learning, including models for scalable provision that may generate revenues, and promote open learning
  • Revenue models – different revenue models taking the established ideas from technology start-ups
  • Service Disaggregation – experimentation with business models that include unbundling and re-bundling of courses and delivery related services.

There are some good tables in the document itself, including a nice distinction between xMOOC and cMOOC, different models of course provision, pedagogic dimensions, self-assessment, and emerging business models. (The preview tool said I had exceeded my bandwidth limit - I don't see why people use those user-hostile 'preview' tools). Direct link (20 page PDF).
