Although building an open course is not necessarily very costly, it does require a modest investment of time or money to create and maintain and thus can be difficult either for an individual academic or for an institution to justify. However, if a course is developed using low-cost techniques and used by an institution for delivery to multiple audiences, in different modes simultaneously, it may not only cover the costs of development immediately it may help to reduce costs, improve quality of learning and improve access to learners who previously could not gain access. This presentation will briefly describe low-cost production methods for MOOCs identified in the EU funded LoCoMoTion project and describe how these can be used within an institution to simultaneously serve campus learners, distance learners, free online learners and competency-based learners.
