How to Measure Student Engagement in the Context of Blended-MOOC
Almutairi, Fadiyah; White, Su
Interactive Technology and Smart Education, v15 n3 p262-278 2018
Purpose: This paper aims to develop a model of measuring student engagement in a blended-massive open online course (MOOC) context. MOOCs are those that are delivered, usually by leading universities, with a promise to provide free high-quality education to an unlimited number of learners. They offer an opportunity for "blended" course design, where instructors can integrate MOOC content within face-to-face educational activities and components. Design/methodology/approach: Three internationally recognized existing frameworks, the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), UK Engagement Survey (UKES) and Student Engagement Questionnaire (SEQ), were combined into a single model. The model was confirmed by a panel of 35 expert practitioners. A trial evaluation using the model was carried out on 13 students who had participated in a course that had adopted a blended-MOOC format. Findings: The confirmed model has nine indicators which provide information about distinct aspects of student engagement. Originality/value: It is considered to be the first model designed to measure student engagement within the blended-MOOC context.
