eCornell CEO Paul Krause said his organization, which started as an entrepreneurial unit of Cornell University’s main campus and now provides much of the institution’s online infrastructure and marketing, has laid out a model for massive open online course (MOOCs) providers to look to as an example for monetization.  Personalization is important, said Krause during a conversation in Austin last week. Even in an online or blended space, he said, offering relevant, engaging experiences is the best way to get the desired outcomes for the average students. To achieve the needed level of personalization, Krause said instructors and course designers should find ways to embed high levels of peer-to-peer interaction, even within online modules, and incorporate course examples that are timely and relevant to students.
