We are setting up idea for a few programming/math courses we'd like to offer online. Can anyone with experience in this area suggest the kind of setup, the software, the fee structure, etc?
I believe that the real money in universities is in building a brand. This is of course very hard, but one strategy could be to join up with an authority in the field and provide him/her with the opportunity to say that they have created their own school, which utilizes their own teaching strategies. You should adjust your charges depending on the brand.
