Abstract: Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) challenge the conventional university model of learning. This paper contrasts MOOCs offered in several contexts, illustrating both the potential and problems encountered. The 2014 Healthy and Sustainable Living MOOC ran on the Moodle and WizIQ platforms. Successful as a rich content program, the MOOC evidenced marketing and connectivity problems. Offered annually since 2013, Moodle for Teachers MOOCs fared better. The benefit of employing MOOCs, the design, implementation and lessons learned will be discussed.
