openHPI: Evolution of a MOOC Platform from LMS to SOA

Michael Totschnig, Christian Willems, Christoph Meinel

Abstract

This article presents a new platform for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), developed at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Germany. After describing the evolution of theMOOC concept and the format, we explain how we defined the requirements for the platform, how we evaluated different open source learning management systems as candidate solutions, and how the actual platform was built. The results of two first courses delivered through the platform are presented and an outlook is given towards a planned redesign of the platform based on a Service Oriented Software (SOA) approach.
