MOOCs

Massively Open Online Course (MOOC) is an emerging model for interactive online learning experiences designed to accommodate possibly unlimited numbers of learners who potentially arrive, attend, participate, and leave on their own terms.   MOOCs can take advantage of existing social media and gaming environments as platforms to host both formal and informal learning experiences.

Opportunity Statement

MOOCs are primarily a ‘mash up’ opportunity domain, where new ventures will orchestrate trends, tools, and applications to serve audiences and their learning demands in creative, accessible and typically non-traditional ways.   There are exciting opportunities for disruptively new ventures, and for existing ventures to pioneer new markets.
