The University of Sydney has two new MOOcs (via Coursera), Innovation through design (Martin Tomitsch and Cara Wrigey) and Design Strategy (Eric Knight). What makes them especially significant is that they are funded by a NSW government programme for entrepreneurs and small business. Such support, as CMM regularly bangs-on, is a big future for MOOCs – providing government with a way to provide information and assistance to the community at a fraction of the cost of broadcast media.
