We are currently in the process of making a MOOC Which Isn't A MOOC - i.e. it is a wrapper, but it will not be synchronous, learners will be able to start whenever they wish. For this reason, I am interested in the model provided by MIT OCW Scholar:
OCW Scholar courses are designed for independent learners who have few additional resources available to them. The courses are substantially more complete than typical OCW courses and include new custom-created content as well as materials repurposed from MIT classrooms. The materials are also arranged in logical sequences and include multimedia such as video and simulations.This is more advanced that what we are trying to achieve locally, but it's still a good model for us to consider as we slog away with our project over the next few months. Having said that, the lecture capture examples are atrocious - come on MIT, what are you thinking?
