EMMOCs2015 - Do MOOC students come back for more? Recurring students in the GdP MOOC

Today, most students enrolling in a MOOC already have attended to another MOOC before. We study here a subcategory of these students, who register to the same MOOC several times, which we call Recurring Students (RS). Using data collected during three 5-week sessions of the GdP MOOC (N > 14,000 on average per session), we show there is a significant and increasing proportion (over 10%) of RS. While their re-enrollment seems influenced by changes in course content, they succeed in the same proportions or less than new students (NS). A more granular analysis, separating RS who had previously completed a track (Recurring Successful Students - RSS) from those who hadn’t (Recurring Unsuccessful Students - RUS), reveals that RUS complete the new session in the same proportion as NS, whereas RSS fail more. As a conclusion, we propose recommendations to address these students, which could be valuable for other multiple-session MOOCs.

  11. 11. RQ2: taking part in research questionnaires? (1/2) Propensity to answer: ▫ RS = NS in GdP3 ▫ RS < NS in GdP4 ▫ RUS > RSS in GdP3&4 11Recurring students in the GdP MOOC – F. Bouchet & R. Bachelet RS answer less overall, unsuccessful RS answer more than successful ones

  13. 13. RQ3: better grades? (1/2) Number of points obtained: ▫ Basic track: • RS < NS • RSS < RUS ▫ Advanced track: • RS < NS • RSS > RUS 13Recurring students in the GdP MOOC – F. Bouchet & R. Bachelet Previously successful ones better on advanced track, less good on basic track
  14. 14. RQ3: better completion? (2/2) Session completed (true | false): ▫ RS < NS ▫ RUS > RSS in GdP3 ▫ RUS = RSS in GdP4 14Recurring students in the GdP MOOC – F. Bouchet & R. Bachelet RS complete less than NS Previously unsuccessful complete more or as much
  15. 15. Results summary  Recurring students (RS) exist (10%) and here to stay (↗ %)  RS answer to research questionnaires less and faster  RS complete less the sessions, different reasons: ▫ Previously successful (1/3) : Go faster through basic content Don’t want to complete again ▫ Previously unsuccessful (2/3) : Motivated but struggling 15Recurring students in the GdP MOOC – F.

  16. 16. Further study/conclusions  Recurring students (RS) exist (10%) and here to stay (↗ %)  to be confirmed in new sessions (additional content)  RS answer to optional questionnaires less and faster  retrieve previous answers and offer to update them?  RS complete less the sessions, different reasons: ▫ Previously successful (1/3) : Go faster through basic content Don’t want to complete again should be able to focus only on new content “Carry over” of grades? ▫ Previously unsuccessful (2/3) : Motivated but struggling  provide additional support from the beginning 16Recurring students in the GdP MOOC – F.
