Abstract
Massive Online Open Courses or MOOCs might be one of the most popular ways on e-learning, which facilitate to access quality education for learners residing in far or disadvantaged areas. MOOCs have several modes for providing learning resources, but not all courses could meet student goals. To MOOCs designers and managers, it's important to build an effective MOOC, that how to identify the effectiveness of a MOOC is equally important. The MOOCs stakeholders face arge of opportunities and challenges. In this paper, firstly we analyze the evolution of MOOCs including types of MOOCs, development stages of MOOCs, evaluation dimension to an effective MOOC, and automated tools for MOOCs delivery or assessment. Next we conclude main challenges and affected factors to MOOCs stakeholders in MOOC design, delivery, and assessment for improving the quality of MOOC. Finally we propose a framework where could help each MOOCs stakeholder clear the main task or critical affected quality factors.
