Chapter title: The SMAC Opportunity Contracts: Generating Value from Responsive Agile Risk Oriented Techniques

Abstract: The concept of Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud (SMAC) is increasingly asserted as the phenomena with the potential to change technology and business relationships. Plenty of Middle Circles (MCs) are being introduced as principal suppliers, integrators or outsourced contractors. This is reducing the Client Enterprises’ (CE) controls over their technology assets. Because SMAC is not mature yet, its nature is very disruptive and agile, thus rapidly changing the landscape of contracting, and ultimately turning the long-held promise of utility-based computing into a reality. Such changes necessitate contracting transformation with innovated approaches to get targeted benefits, reduce risks and control operation standards and/or the legal framework. The main objective of this chapter is to provide some guidelines to generate SMAC opportunity contracting schemes that are responsive and agile to gain maximum business value, while influencing other related factors: maximizing benefits, limiting risks and supporting the roles and obligations in an ever‑changing environment.

Chapter title: MOOCs on Mobiles: curating the web and using social media to enhance e-learning

Abstract: MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) have gained popularity for e-learning purposes. Effectiveness of a MOOC depends on the platform interface design and management, which should create student cohesiveness and optimize collaboration. A MOOC prototype was developed and e-learning applications were pilot-tested for one semester with a total of 160 students from graduate courses in a French business school. Students used a mobile supported e-learning environment and reported their experiences through the writing of a synthesis, the building of a CMS (Content Management System) and the elaboration of a content curation system.
