MOOC Dropout? - Part II

In an earlier post I discussed the difficulties of defining what 'dropout' is in a MOOC. Coming to the last week of our #FLMobiGame 'what was the dropout in your MOOC?' will be a question that I will have to answer. But without knowing the definition of 'dropout' what could be the answer?
I think my answer would be "depends on your definition of 'dropout'".

Looking into the participants' perspective of MOOCs we have now interviewed 11 MOOC participants. There are some focus groups planned with a variety of groups including school students (16-18 year olds) known to have taken a MOOC.

Our paper on MOOC dropout that will be presented at EMOOCs2014 is now ready to be submitted for the proceedings and I am working on the presentation. There is so much to understand about MOOCs. If you want to know more about our research click here.
