EDUCAUSE Live! | Sifting Through Data: Completion, Motivation, and Learning in Minnesota MOOCs

University of Minnesota's first five MOOCs during the summer of 2013. This large-N study draws on pre- and posttest course data to offer an empirically grounded picture of who the students are who take MOOCs, what their motivations are, and the factors that affect their completion rates. Additionally, preliminary data on the impact of the MOOC environment on student learning will be offered.
