Abstract: Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are free courses offered with a range of options. MOOCs have been run by several universities so as to deliver education around the globe (Mohapatra and Roy, 2012). This paper presents an empirical study of stakeholders' viewpoints, which have developed into a framework. The framework will provide guidance to those who would venture into offering open online courses. Using a sample size of 135 respondents, we have used structured equation modelling to derive the framework.
Keywords: online courses; free education; structured equation modelling; massive open online courses; MOOCs.
