Hatch, match, and dispatch: Examining the relationship between student intent, expectations, behaviours and outcomes in six Coursera MOOCs at the University of Toronto (30m)

To date, faculty at the University of Toronto have offered more than half a dozen Coursera MOOCs. These MOOCs demonstrate the diversity of topics, disciplines, and teaching approaches that characterize the rich tapestry of academic life at the university. Early reflections on the experience of instructors and students have led us to consider the interplay of intent and expectations (corresponding to the “hatch” aspect of the proposal title), behaviour, and outcomes (“dispatch” in the proposal title) more closely. Our primary goal in the proposed research is to use survey, clickstream, and assessment outcome data from the MOOCs that have been offered to understand how those dimensions interact (the “match” in the proposal title). As well, the research project will focus on adaptation of analytic methods particular to large MOOC data sets and documentation of those methods.
