No one university can ignore the MOOC phenomenon. Although it is rapidly falling down along the Gartner Hype curve it will definitively influence the ways of teaching. But before jumping into the development of costly resources universities should define their objectives and thoroughly consider what does means going in this direction.

We will categorize the possible interests of a MOOC, for an institution, and then consider the needed resources, which must be, assemble before making the decision. A MOOC is a project for a full team, not for a single academic and this means coordination, human resources as well as a technical environment. A thorough investigation of all the requirements is mandatory before making any decision.
