  8. Hi Stephen,

    My name is Sergio Luján, I'm an assistant professor at the University of Alicante, I'm coordinating the development of three MOOCs:

    1. iDESWEB, Introducción al desarrollo web (Introduction to web development), http://idesweb.es
    More than 4,300 students enrolled

    2. iXML, Introducción a XML (Introduction to XML), http://ixml.es
    Just launched two days ago, more than 200 students enrolled

    3. UniMOOC aemprende (Key factors in entrepreneurship), http://unimooc.com
    Just launched two weeks ago, more than 6,000 students enrolled

    We work with a "low profile": we don't appear on the news, we don't spend money on adverts, etc. However, we think our courses have a good enrollment rate.

    Good luck to all the MOOCers!!!

  14. Stephen,

    Where does OpenPD (http://openpd.wikispaces.com/) and its fall 2007 predecessor (see http://socialsoftware07.wikispaces.com/How+We+Did+It) fit into your published history of MOOCs?

    If you remember, Robin Ellis and I were offering open online courses to teachers back when MOOC was an innocent misspelling of MOOG.

  15. Darren, an open online *class* is not the same as an open online course.
