At every MOOC-related event I attend, I meet people who say they want to teach online classes. Most are affiliated with a university or school, and often some plans seem imminent, but I rarely hear about new courses sprouting up outside of the most high-profile MOOC platforms.
For all the interest in MOOCs, there is precious little guidance for teachers on how to produce them. I hope to give some good examples to follow here. Even for students, it’s worth watching how MOOCs are produced with an eye on the educational goals, production elements and the resources employed.
