Volumes

Volumes (a weird tmesis of VLE and LMS) is a WordPress plugin we developed to allow anyone with a WordPress site to run a MOOC. Early on Рand still РMOOC platforms limit to access to selected institutions and subsequently to  individuals. You could run a MOOC using a variety of platforms, but this would involve knowing how to set up the platform and so on. With Volumes, the idea was to offer a MOOC in a box. In doing so, this meant, hopefully if you wanted to MOOC, you could.
