As I thought I said, I know the software is capable of grading as I know people doing it. But, there is a big difference between interactive and grading as well as a big difference between managing the record keeping for a class of less than 100 vs a class of 20,000. One can provide self-testing components of an on-line class which help the student assess whether they have mastered the material or not, but those involve no record keeping. Many on-line classes of the non-MOOC kind also include tests and exercises which are graded by the teacher ... manageable for small numbers, but no for five figures without huge cost. Even if one provides fully automated testing ... which has enormous limitations with some subject matter ... just recording the grades and providing a way for students to reference these for an employer is going to add significantly to the on-going cost of presenting the course. And that brings it back to wondering how all this is going to get paid for.The on-line, fully automated courses for traffic tickets (not that I personally have ever used one) provide a model that can work if the students are paying and doesn't require them to be paying a lot. But, there is a big difference between not much and free.
