  • Would you not be better off to scale the Landing so that variations in enrollment do not impact the traditional student body? The inclusion of sync collaboration tools gives supports both sync and async collaboration modes.

    The Landing also supports emergent groups within any MOOC can happen rather than requiring admin support which should result in useful clustering why not increasing the admin workload. The experience provides the opportunity to move participants into traditional AU programs or cross-marketing to other MOOC's while supporting the distinct brands of MOOC/traditioanl programs. From the perspective of revenue streams this could support both the "ask" model for donations as well as the evolution of a PLAR fee for service for participants interested in recognition.
