Short Description

This paper intends to reveal the results of a study in which the general characteristics (demographics, learning strategies, openness to innovation, computer literacy), reasons to attend, satisfaction and persistence of the Turkish MOOC participants were investigated. It was conducted in the Anadolu University’s MOOCs platform AKADEMA in which up-to-now total 58 courses offered to thousands of learners. Those audiences who are interested in offering MOOCs in different cultures, moderating/facilitating MOOC participants from various countries, and conducting research on MOOCs might find this presentation quite beneficial.
