The MOOC Hype Fades, in 3 Charts – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

The MOOC Hype Fades, in 3 Charts – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | MOOCs - sustainability and customer satisfaction | Scoop.it
The percentage of institutions offering a MOOC seems to be leveling off, at around 14 percent, while suspicions persist that MOOCs will not generate money or reduce costs for universities—and are not, in fact, sustainable.
Paola Corti's insight:
"...academic leaders seem to understand that any returns on their investment in free online courses will be indirect and possibly hard to quantify. They also seem to be at peace with the fact that MOOCs will not curb college costs, which they pegged as the most important issue driving the future of higher education. Self-directed learning, a central feature of MOOCs, ranked as the least important issue out of the six Babson asked about."

Massive open online courses: What's it like to enroll in MOOCs? - ContraCostaTimes.com

"The first thing I learned is why so few who start MOOCs finish them: They're hard. When a class is free and doesn't generally produce a credential it takes real self-discipline (or a promise to your editor to write about the experience) to make yourself keep up."

What I’ve learnt from MOOC design

What I’ve learnt from MOOC design | MOOCs - sustainability and customer satisfaction | Scoop.it
One design, multiple pathways…

I’m learning a lot from the Coursera MOOCs I’m doing. Their open structure provides various levels of knowledge and resources. With diverse options for connection they are able to cater for the needs of many different learners. MOOC design has been based around satisfying the needs of massively diverse learners. Considering how this flexibility works for a range of individual learners has given me food for thought in my own course design.
Paola Corti's insight:

interesting perspective from Kate Casey on what's effective in MOOCs design, starting from her direct experience as Coursera MOOCs student
