MOOC mania

Writing about web page http://code.google.com/p/course-builder/

I'm signed up with a few MOOC's (Massive Open Online Courses). There's an interesting article on the guardian website about the reluctance of UK universities to engage with MOOC's. It seems that the primary concerns are to do with reputation, student support and (surprise, surprise) money. I've been playing around with Google AppEngine (which I got into when I was doing the udacity 'build a blog' course) and Google have now released course-builder, which allows you to develop an online course that can be hosted on their servers. You can build (and host) a course for free, so long as you stay within their quota limits, so I'm going to have a go. Not looking to create something that's affiliated with any institution, just trying out the tech and hopefully will learn something along the way...
