This article (5 page PDF) describes the integration of a MOOC within an existing curriculum in a process the authors describe as a Curriculum Inclusive MOOC (ciMOOC). We aren't told very much about what a ciMOOC is, exactly (though we are told several times that it is "a framework implemented by a private Indian University to provide flexibility to both University and its students"). It seems to me that this is an example of what used to be called a "wrapped MOOC". And this points to a weakness in standard processes of literature review - if you didn't know the term "wrapped MOOC" (and why would you?) you wouldn't be able to find the previous work done on the subject.
