Deserção em MOOCS: alguns fatores-chave

Andres Chiappe, Blanca Diana Lorena Castillo


O abandono dos alunos nos Cursos Online Abertos Massivos (Mooc) tem sido objeto de debate e preocupação por parte de pesquisadores e profissionais da área educacional durante a última década. Considerando seu crescimento como uma tendência educacional e as pesquisas emergentes geradas sobre esse tema, foi realizada uma revisão sistemática da literatura em 131 estudos sobre o atrito nos cMooc e xMoocs. Os resultados destacam o papel da colaboração, o senso de comunidade, a necessidade de certificação e padronização como os principais fatores que afetam o atrito nos Moocs.
