—MOOCs are an opportunity to think of learning as
an interaction of different people and groups in totally new
ways. This paper proposes a didactic setting in which students
act as teachers in a MOOC and asks the question, if there is a
double gain of MOOCs when employed as an in-class teaching
method and as a worldwide learning environment. The analysis
of a case study, a student made MOOC “Online data privacy”,
delivers first insights into the feasibility and didactic value of
such a novel approach.
—Case study, MOOC, teaching method.
