This does not include the time needed to transfer these exercises into the quiz system used by the platform in question. The animation of the course (by the community manager) corresponds to around 6 hours per week, so 48 hours in total. Note that a face-to-face course requires 4 hours of preparation per 1½-hour session of applied work. It is in this area, therefore, that a MOOC can represent a saving in terms of university education.
