I am not sure what the requirements are to teach a MOOC. I guess it is a little different, depending on which platform one is going to teach. As far as I undestand, Coursera offers only 15% of the revenue to the teaching team. Somewhere else it might be more, but the number of participants is smaller. Does someone have experience whether it is financially worth to teach a MOOC?
For this question please leave aside other benefits like getting known or the satisfaction of teaching. I see those as benefits, but that is not the question for now.
Also I am only counting money that flows from the MOOC platform to the team/organisation/company, not compensation from a university to the lecturer for doing the course (like discussed in How are instructors compensated for teaching a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)?).
