I've just removed uneOpen from the template, partly because the adding user has a potential COI but more because related to that the section/page it referred to has also been reverted. I don't know much about uneOpen but it may well be appropriate to re-add it once that section has been reinstated on the UNE page. See http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=University_of_New_England_%28Australia%29&diff=556332255&oldid=556331235 and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:UNEMarketing Sjgknight (talk) 08:11, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Problem with the list[edit]

It seems that the template is being used by some for advertisement. I have checked the articles about the not so famous people and organizations that claim to be considered the first MOOC but don't provide any reliable secondary source for such claims. (talk) 09:03, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi, it's not clear what the problem is (who/what) or what you think should be done about it, which makes it a bit hard to respond Sjgknight (talk) 09:33, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi! I don't understand our insertion criterion, by the way. User count or any award? --Gruznov (talk) 22:58, 11 October 2014 (UTC)


What is the criteria for a person being included in this template? I'm not seeing the term MOOC being used in their articles. Sam Walton (talk) 13:05, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Women & MOOCs[edit]

Only 1 of 14 people linked from this template is a woman. The next time we update the People list, let's put some effort into identifying women whose work merits inclusion here. Runner1928 (talk) 18:37, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
