Deployment of MOOCs in Virtual Joint Academic Degree Programs

George Sammour, Abdallah Al-Zoubi, Jeanne Schreurs

Abstract

This research paper investigates the readiness of students to opt for MOOC courses in universities offering a joint master degree international programme. A study is conducted on two joint academic study programs offered by the University of Hasselt in Belgium and Princess Sumaya University for Technology in Jordan. The study examines the readiness of students to take MOOC courses and their acceptance by universities’ management staff and professors. The study reveals promising results as the results suggest that such virtual study programs are readily accepted in both universities by professors and students. On the other hand, management staff and some professors expressed concerns on the approval of the equivalence of a MOOC onto courses.
