These all blend well together to enable the flow of data across all applications.
  11. 11.  To carry out a MOOC in the developing world can be challenging due to connectivity issues, bandwidth, importance of facilities etc. but it is recognized that these are helpful in expanding the reach of intent and keeping the cost low. MOOCs provide an opportunity to experiment without interrupting present setups. EdX is an open-source platform and Google has announced its course builder, a MOOC platform as and OS development platform using Google environments. It would make sense if Educational Institutions in developing countries would collaborate to develop a joint Open Source MOOC platform to suit their needs and wants.
