Abstract

Globalisation and increased competition nationally and internationally for students points towards the need for increasingly flexible learning routes, but these must also be sustainable and cost effective for institutions to deliver. Established models of higher education can be much more costly compared to those presented by open online courses. This paper discusses possible entrepreneurial initiatives in the context of open education and online learning that focus on three key areas emerging from MOOC experiments: openness; revenue models; and disaggregation of HE provision. A case study will be presented to demonstrate the development of new models around openness, collaboration, and innovation through international partnerships in an open learning ecosystem. The potential for entrepreneurship in developing open online courses and the challenges faced in a higher education context are discussed.
