We are launching a research study into self-regulated learning in massive open online courses Massive Open Online Courses. Little is known about the impact of MOOCs on learning so we want to form a better understanding of how they support different types of learning.
Anoush Margaryan, Colin Milligan and I are interested in self-regulated learning outside formal learning contexts. We have designed a study, which aims to surface, describe and systematise the activities and strategies that adult learners use to self-regulate their learning in the context of the Change 2011 massive open online course (MOOC).
We are looking for volunteers to participate in this study. Anyone who has signed up for the Change11 MOOC is welcome to participate. Participation in the study will involve completion of an online questionnaire (in January/February 2012) and participation in a telephone or Skype interview (in or around March 2012).
