Abstract

This paper analyses the motivation and interaction issues that constitute the core of educational design of MOOCs. In detail, a MOOC course was designed for investigating the influence of MOOC’s educational design on enhancing learners’ motivation and interaction with the instructor within course's forum. The IMMS questionnaire was chosen in order to measure learners’ motivation and course’s Learning Analytics, so as to examine interaction. The results indicated that educational design affects learners’ motivation and interaction. More specifically, affects the participation within the course and forum, the amount of posts, and the course’s completion.
