It looks like Instructure is getting into MOOCs with https://www.canvas.net/
Press release here: http://www.instructure.com/instructure-launches-an-open-online-course-network-on-canvas
Hack Education post with more information here: http://hackeducation.com/2012/10/31/instructure-canvas-network-moocs/index.php
It looks like the target use case for these courses are existing Canvas clients, and Instructure's goal is to provide a new entry point for LMS customers. I suspect Blackboard is trying to do the same with CourseSites, but I don't know, Canvas just seems…. Friendlier?
What do you all think? Any Canvas users out there that might offer their course through canvas.net?
