The potential for using Moodle to deliver the content, facilitation, assessment and reporting of a MOOC

There have been a number of platforms used for hosting the different types of MOOCs, each of them with nuances in features and technical capability. 

Some MOOC platforms have been custom built for the purpose, and some are existing platforms, repurposed or adapted for use in MOOC delivery. 


This presentation examine whether Moode is suitable for hosting and delivering a MOOC.

It will first have to look at a typical MOOC and what it involves from a functional and practical standpoint. 

It will then take a look at the Moodle through the lens of this deconstruction  and deliberate on the broken down feature list and how these can be offered through the use of Moodle.
