Wong, M. (2013) Massive Open Online Courses at UBC, University of British Columbia Centre for Teaching Learning and Technology, January 31

This is an interesting, detailed ‘behind-the-scenes’ look at how the University of British Columbia plans to be offering four MOOCs through Coursera this year:

Game Theory started last month and has the second highest Coursera enrolment, with 130,000 students enrolled.

The report states:

The four-course pilot will enable UBC to conduct practice-based research initiatives and experiments, which will enhance the learning experience of students in distance, blended, and physical classroom environments.

It should be noted that UBC has considerable experience already in offering for-credit online courses, starting in 1995, and has several fully online graduate programs..
