This project studies data gathered from the first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) offered within the University of Wisconsin System (UW System). The course is titled the UW System College Readiness Math MOOC and is designed to help students gain or strengthen the mathematics skills needed in entry level college mathematics and science courses, helping to provide access to college and to avoid the need to take remedial (or developmental) math courses while in college. The demographics of the students in the course is very broad. Students from every state and from nearly 40 countries participated, and the ages ranged from 11 to 85 years. The study is analyzing data gathered from the MOOC using new tools and adapting existing tools to study a number of research questions. The student demographics is compared with successes, the activities that the students spent time on are analysed, and the value of each course component is being assessed. The research includes a study of the student experiences, learner outcomes, the learning design, and performance metrics through the use of learner analytics tools that are under construction.
