The University of Otago is taking one of its business degrees to the world by offering it over the web.

 

The development comes after vice-chancellor Prof Harlene Hayne last year was cool on Otago embracing the rise of ''massive open online courses'' - known as Moocs.

 

Mr Lafferty said its offering did not fit the definition of a Mooc and was instead a Spoc - a small private online course.

 

This meant class numbers would be limited to about 20 and those who signed up would pay just as much as if they were doing it on campus.
