b) explicate and develop the didactic and pedagogic models for MOOCs on a European scale

c) develop the conditions for shared educational services in offering and monitoring European MOOCs

d) develop sustainable business models for joint efforts on these European MOOCs at a global, European, national and institutional level.

e) build up a sustainable open knowledge network for these types of MOOCs which is open to the whole world.
