Building OOC layers on top of existing courses

The case presented in this paper is founded in a Danish context and presents an approach to development of Open Online Courses (OOC) in a small language area. Developing open online education for a country of approximately 5 million inhabitants means that we cannot aim for "massive". Thus, we prefer the term "Open Online Courses", MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) without the M. This paper will present our approach to building OOCs on top of existing campusbased courses at Aarhus University, Denmark. Consequently, participants of an 'OOC track' will engage in collaboration and discussions with enrolled students in an ECTS course. The OOC will be designed to support different levels of participation from external students, who can chose to produce, discuss, browse or view elements of the course.
