A Systematic Analysis and Synthesis of the Empirical MOOC Literature Published in 2013–2015 | Easy MOOC | Scoop.it

...The goal of this paper is to address a number of gaps in the scholarly understanding of MOOCs and present a comprehensive picture of the literature by examining the geographic distribution, publication outlets, citations, data collection and analysis methods, and research strands of empirical research focusing on MOOCs. We tackle this goal by reviewing relevant literature and situating this study in the context of prior literature; presenting our research questions and describing the methods used to collect data; describing the data analysis methods used to answer each research question; and presenting our results. We conclude by discussing findings and making recommendations for researchers studying MOOC-related topics.
