How to Improve Students Learning Outcomes in Online Courses and MOOCs

Feedback form is now closed.

In online learning environment, in online courses, especially in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) students plan, manage and control their own learning processes: they decide where, when and with what schedule they study the learning material. MOOCs provide lower levels of support and guidance by instructors, these online courses require strong control from students, which means not only flexibility and autonomy for them but also responsibility. In such learning environment to regulate one's learning process is a critical skill to achieve personal learning objectives.

By now for 6 years having been an instructor of an online course which can be taken by students of 22 Hungarian universities (and 5 universities outside of Hungary) and which is also works as a MOOC course, I studied the factors by which students could be more successful in online courses and the factors by which online courses could be more effective. In my study I dealt with grit, self-regulated learning (SRL), motivation, academic procrastination and the impacts of instructors’ interactions as factors.

I will also present the challenges and lessons learned from the creation of my MOOC course. In addition I collected the methods by which the effectiveness of online courses can be improved. I will present the advantages of creating, instructing and managing MOOCs.

My presentation will focus on the following questions:
Q1: What factors can improve students' learning outcomes in online courses and MOOCs?
Q2: What methods can improve the effectiveness of MOOCs?
Q3: What are the advantages of creating, instructing and managing a MOOC course?

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Identify factors that can improve students' learning outcomes in online courses and MOOCs
  • Identify methods that can improve the effectiveness of online courses and MOOCs
  • Identify advantages of creating and instructing a MOOC course
