Report on types of #MOOC support offered by libraries
They identified that libraries were supporting MOOCs by: Copyright Clearance; Open content promotion; Licensing resources; Instructional support; Production support; in some cases with a general support model (e.g. a librarian assigned to each MOOC).
Institutional factors affecting the library's engagement with MOOCs were: Nature of MOOCs offered by the institution; Institutional coordination of MOOCs; Models of MOOC support; Structure of existing [library] services; [library] Staff and budget.

Picture: I thought it amusing that apparently the word "bookmark" must have been appropriated to mean web bookmarks, so that you have to find a new word to mean, um, bookmarks. This has nothing to do with MOOCs, by the way.
