Abstract

There is a pressing need to better understand the instructional design and delivery methods of instructors of massive open online courses (MOOCs) In response, this mixed method study focused on how MOOC instructors encourage online interaction The data sources were an online survey delivered to over 1,400 MOOC instructors, of which 143 valid responses were received In addition, there were interviews with 12 instructors and course reviews of their MOOCs To encourage online learner interaction, these instructors utilized asynchronous discussion forums, pair-based assignments or peer reviews, and social media to encourage peer interaction At the same time, learner-instructor interaction was encouraged through online discussion forum, platform messages, and social media connections In terms of learner-content interaction, MOOC instructors primarily relied on discussion forums, video lectures and tutorials in the MOOC, readings, and practice quizzes and exams Implications and future directions for research on MOOC instructors are provided
