Academy, Moodle's take on a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) platform, has launched. It's in a very preliminary state, with one institutional partner (Dublin City University) and seven courses (or, more accurately, seven course placeholders, as they are in pre-enrollment stage). Announced last year, the idea is that it "will be a centralized MOOC hosting platform run and managed by Moodle. This is for institutions or Moodlers who want to hold a MOOC but don’t necessarily have the bandwidth to deal with the short term (massive) hit on their internal resources."
