Howarth, Jason Paul; D'Alessandro, Steven; Johnson, Lester; White, Lesley – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2016
Despite the widespread adoption of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), no business model has emerged to make them sustainable from an institution standpoint.

The outward-facing elements of the Bologna…
