Abstract
The concept of the massive, open, online course (MOOC) is not new, but recent high-profile initiatives have moved them into the forefront of higher education news. The value of MOOCs, however, is yet to be seen. The purpose of this presentation is to report the results of a qualitative study conducted to investigate the design of MOOCs. Analyses of course documents were performed to evaluate the quality of these courses.
