I also enjoyed the case studies. One of the most satisfying things was that my friend, who works in a top consulting firm in Canada, told me that the concepts we were learning are his everyday tools in the office. I was so glad that the knowledge I gained was readily useful and I recommended he took the MOOC to improve his programming skills and integrate Python into his spreadsheet”
  9. 9. Challenges project and alliance 1. Strategic & operational approach to management of the program differs per institution- different speed and also ambition 2. No show rate of students and match with portfolio 3. Scalability of the administrative processes 4. VE is not in the core of programmes and administration- dependant on committed teachers
