MOOC Development Session GraphicThe vast majority of MOOCs use video lectures as their primary method of information dissemination. This creates a series of interesting challenges for individuals in the multimedia and video production professions. Often we look at an image and appreciate the look of it, without fully understanding how much time, effort and resources were invested in creating it. Similarly, video production may seem like a simple process, but if you do not plan effectively, you may have to rerecord your lectures multiple times, thereby increasing the overall cost of the MOOC. In this session on development, we will discuss the nuances of various types of multimedia production, which will enable us to more effectively plan how to manage this crucial phase of MOOC creation.
