To MOOC Or Not To MOOC? That is the question for the learner…

Do they want to learn in a community with other learners? In addition to traditional course materials such as videos, readings, and problem sets , MOOCs provide interactive user forums that help build a community for students, professors, and teaching assistants (TAs). So in order for this to happen effectively, the MOOC does need to be scheduled so that the community of learners can be built during that time frame just like a brick and mortar course at an institution.
