It is reported that MOOC completion rates across various platforms are not significant. It is estimated that 5 to 10 percent
of active participants do proceed to complete MOOCs. Some learners complete one or more modules of their courses, leaving out the rest. It was once believed that the best criterion for measuring MOOC success
is MOOC completion rate. Some have proposed new models
for measuring success rate recently, though.
I would love to hear your ideas. Do you typically complete every MOOC you take? Have you ever taken a course just for the sake of benefiting from a portion of its material without the intention of actually completing it? Could it really mean that the MOOC was not successful? How would you define a successful MOOC?
