Technology, Massive Open Online Course, Teaching and Learning


Purpose of Study: Technology-based education methods have an interest in ensuring Malaysia's position in the global rankings. Furthermore, the government intends to raise the level of online learning globally. Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is a platform that allows the government’s intention to be successfully achieved. This study aims to identify students’ level of knowledge on the importance of the use of MOOC and on the application of MOOC in teaching and learning. It also intends to identify the students’ level of acceptance of MOOC and the level of its effectiveness in teaching and learning. A total of 247 users of MOOC from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) were sampled in this study.

Methodology:  The data were collected using a set of questionnaire and were analyzed using the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSSv 21).

Results: Results showed that the level of knowledge, usage, acceptance, and effectiveness was high among the students. From the findings, some suggestions were made to future researchers and the parties involved in university management.

Implications/Applications: The finding noted a high level of the students’ knowledge about the importance of MOOC in teaching and learning, the students’ use of the application of the MOOC in teaching and learning, as well as their acceptance on the use of MOOC. This indicates that the use of teaching and learning in blended learning through the MOOC platform can be received by the students.
