Inquiry MOOC Budget Draft

I broke down each major phase of MOOC design, development, and implementation in a separate table. Each table contains tasks, who would contribute to that task, and a rough estimate of hours it will take. The numbers of hours that I have considered for each phase is more than the suggested hours. I have signed myself up for all tasks that I could possibly do or contribute to. I thought you could keep my name where needed and/or add Stian and then adjust the hours (the hours are rough estimates).

The time line for this MOOC would be an anticipated first offering in winter 2015, or as Jim suggested summer of 2015 when schools are closed and teachers may have more time.
