BizMOOC is divided into 9 coherent work packages (WP). WP1 – 4 are content based and develop/implement the MOOC BOOK and 3 Pilot MOOCs. WP5 (quality assurance), WP6 (evaluation) & WP9 (project management) facilitate the working steps. WP7 & WP8 ensure dissemination, exploitation & sustainability and create awareness.
Creates a common body of knowledge and identifies the needs of the target groups “businesses “, “labour force/society” & “HEIs without MOOCs”, serving as the basis for WP2.
