This presentation will cover the University of Edinburgh's approach to online distance learning, which is relatively recent with the first MSc launching in 2005. The seminar will explore a wide range of aspects of introducing ODL including: the business model, online teaching and staff development and enhancements to student support services. It will also cover the University's more recent forays into the MOOCs world.
