Considerations for Faculty:

  • What Is It Like to Teach a Course?
  • How Much Time Does It Take?
    • Developing a MOOC is labor-intensive (estimates of over 100 hours of development time are common), but many instructors have gained a worldwide following and cross-institutional partnerships as a result of teaching such courses. Additionally, materials and uses of technology developed in MOOCs are often also used to enhance regular on-campus courses (e.g., using recorded lectures to “flip” the classroom).
