Abstract

The focus of this study is to explore the profile of students who subscribed to MOOCs as a flexible learning option. The study was based on an analysis of the respondent’s profile and demographic data. The findings show that students had signed up for MOOCs in their last semester because they considered it to be a flexible learning option. The study found that there were no significant differences among the users’ demographic data, particularly gender and age. The only difference was in the chosen program of course via the MOOC platform.

Keywords: Massive Open Online Course, MOOC user usage, gender, age, the program of study
