Open University announces a MOOC on OERs

"The Open University’s Institute of Educational Technology is leading the first Open Learning Design Studio MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) focusing on the theme of curriculum design with OERs (Open Electronic Resources), to be held in Autumn 2012. This course will be valuable for anyone seeking to develop their professional skills and experience in curriculum design, learning design and use of OERs in education. In particular the course will appeal to new and established HE and FE lecturers, to those completing professional certificates in teaching, and to researchers and managers of teaching and learning innovation."

There are a couple of interesting posts on MOOCs from one of those (I think) involved in the course, Martin Weller: here and here. One of founders of MOOCs, Dave Cormier, also did a long post recently on MOOCs here. Below is a video of his on Success in MOOCs, from 2010.
