How much does it cost to develop a Mooc? How many staff hours does it take to deliver it?

UoLIP director of academic development Mike Kerrison, academic project manager Barney Grainger and associate director of the undergraduate laws programme Patricia McKellar talk to Times Higher Education reporter Chris Parr.
