Planning Sustainability Policy

Initiatives led to a dialogue with key stakeholders and exchanging views and expectations on NSW
department of education, processes and the future development in massive open
online courses (MOOC) and virtual reality in classroom. The methods of involving
different stakeholder groups in MOOC included general information to
stakeholders about MOOC, targeted information on a Web site, analysis of
stakeholder opinions on department of education and MOOC and development of a
draft stakeholder policy.

First steps were taken to
organize processes to consolidate the legitimacy of MOOC and its products and
encourage the representation of interests, thus contributing to promoting the
utilization of department of education in national/regional policy making. A
stakeholder Web site, analyses of stakeholder opinions                     on department of education and
MOOC in a discussion topic catalog, and a draft stakeholder policy resulted
from the work.
