Hi Julien!
Thank you for sharing your idea. I like its on-demand, bespoke nature. I am looking forward to seeing how it develops in the ideas phase. 
I have a few questions. 
What is the pain point you are addressing?
Who would be the first user for your MOOC? What timeslots would they have for MOOCs in a typical weekend, week etc. (e.g. Friday lunchtime for 30 minutes etc.)?
What is the advantage of this MOOC compared to other MOOCs e.g. Coursera, Udemy etc.?
Would there be college credits for participation?

Hello Kate,
Thanks for your feedback.
Here are my answers:
What is the pain point you are addressing?
Who would be the first user for your MOOC?
---> This is adressed on slide 3 (use case examples)
What timeslots would they have for MOOCs in a typical weekend, week etc. (e.g. Friday lunchtime for 30 minutes etc.)?
---> The class schedule is described on slide 6. Starting time is set by the organizer.
What is the advantage of this MOOC compared to other MOOCs e.g. Coursera, Udemy etc.?
---> My proposol builds upon existing MOOC video ressources (or any other sources e.g. Khan Academy, MIT...). It is not a replacement (thus the name MOOC-Augmented).
--->Would there be college credits for participation?
Following a class is a starting point. College credits could be obtained upon the completion of a project within the topic of the class. I believe, that this point would need to be further developed.

If you identify any further questions that could be adressed, please let me know so that I can improve the project.
