Research universities spend upwards of $14 million in library materials, while MOOC investments often add up to over $250K per course. In addition, a vast amount of proprietary courseware is developed by research and teaching faculty at universities for advanced and graduate courses.

Good products usually start with an idea that is simple but makes people’s lives better in some way. Early on, one or two people work to make that vision a reality. In a software startup environment, early employees and clients talk frequently. It’s relatively easy to chart a course and decide how much effort should go into potentially groundbreaking new functionality, incremental feature improvement, or fixing bugs. If a project is good (and lucky) the number of new ideas and competing priorities both increase as the project gains critical mass. Individual sparks come from many sources and often take more than one strike to ignite. As time goes dedicated product people may be able to catch enough sparks in their tinder and coax them into a blaze.
