Mass Open Online Courses have opened a world of possibilities but yet unproven sustainable models. This event will identify where business schools and universities are identifying value and justifying investment.
The search for sustainable value has business schools and universities testing the use of open online courses in a wide range of settings from FutureLearn, Coursera and new platforms to direct teaching, blended learning, international courses, distance learning, student recruitment or searching for new value in student retention, improved student experience, pre-registration courses, widening participation and many more.
Beyond the teaching and learning uses is the search for a business model which justifies the investment, the change in technology of teaching and new cost and revenue models.
This event is for business schools’ academics and managers experimenting and wrestling with finding sustainable models for academic quality and financial viability in a world of mass open online courses and other blended learning models and new private providers entering the market. And in the spirit of open online courses, the day will be broadcast online as a SPOC (specialist private online course) to business schools and universities’ managements so that wider groups of staff can take part, Gather your own local audience and broadcast the event live into your own venue: it needs no more than a local organiser, a good broadband, a laptop and a screen to join the professional conversation group.
