by Kam Cheong Li; Billy Tak-Ming Wong
International Journal of Innovation and Learning (IJIL), Vol. 25, No. 2, 2019

Abstract: This paper reviews the adoption of massive open online courses (MOOCs) by higher education institutions for teaching on-campus courses, and summarises the good practices from relevant case studies. From a total of 28 case studies, it identifies the characteristics of MOOC adoption - platforms, course materials, approaches to facilitate interaction, and assessment methods. The good practices highlight the importance of: 1) the division of labour in implementing MOOCs; 2) the effective use of technology; 3) course redesign based on experience with MOOCs. Examples of institutional practices in adopting MOOCs are provided, illustrating the diverse ways of utilising them to offer students a flexible and personalised learning experience in on-campus courses and tackle the challenges encountered during the adoption of MOOCs.
