  • Engaging with Massive Online Courses - An iinteresting paper from academic staff based at Stanford University. It will be presented at WWW 2014 (23rd International World Wide Web Conference) and is currently available for download from arxiv.org.   Includes a useful literature review of studies on how students engage with MOOCs.  It also shows that giving students incentives such as badges increases engagement. 

    For further  analysis of MOOCs see:
  • MITx Working Papers from Harvard MIT and which has analyse the impact of the first year of the courses.
