I have wondered -- perhaps you have too -- if Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are here to stay. The issue, of course, is profitability; if they are free, how will they make money? An October 15th EdSurge article https://www.edsurge.com/n/2014-10-15-how-does-coursera-make-money?utm_campaign=d2bbaf48dc-Innovate+194-HMHCO&utm_medium=email&utm_source=EdsurgeLive&utm_term=0_0f1ec25b60-d2bbaf48dc-292312373 discusses the evolving Coursera business model, and it looks like it's on the path to a profitable future.
At some point someone(s) will develop MOOCs for adult learners, and for adult basic education professional development. Have you seen any yet? If so, please let me/us know.
