 Google just announced a new research experiment to open source the code
they used to run their recent MOOC, *Power Searching with Google* (
http://www.powersearchingwithgoogle.com/). *Course Builder* (
https://code.google.com/p/course-builder/) contains software and
instructions for presenting course material (
including student activities, basic assessments and instructions for using
other Google products to create a course community (
https://code.google.com/p/course-builder/wiki/ManageCommunity) and to
evaluate the effectiveness<https://code.google.com/p/course-builder/wiki/MeasureEfficacy>of
your course. To develop
*Course Builder* users will be experienced course designers, and will have
basic familiarity with HTML and JavaScript.  This could be an interesting
way to explore the use of the cloud to provide learners with a self paced
learning environment as well as real time feedback on understanding.
