Key issues that emerged from the case studies

Abstract

This chapter analyses and draws out the main conclusions from six case studies of MOOC implementation by universities. The case studies focus upon six types of universities: the entrepreneurs, the opportunists, the institutional innovators, the old hands with online and distance learning, those who are cautious about implementing MOOCs, and the “old guard” who do not wish to engage with MOOCs. It describes the most significant decisions that universities are making about MOOCs and describes the approaches that they are taking to planning and implementing them.
