Abstract


The work on Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), which has become poıpular, continues to grow since the date it has entered the literature, and academicians are rapidly adopting and using it. Even though most of the academics accepted and started using MOOC enviroments, for some it has still not been efficient enough. Academics who think that the enviroment still needs to be developed are working on changes to increase the effectiveness. This is a qualitative and quantitative study in which the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) is used. The aim of this study is to evaluate the views of students who watched the videos of the Khan Academy in the MOOC enviroment according to the dimensions of Perceived Usefulness (PU), Perceived Ease Of Use (PEOU), Learning Strategies and Cognitive Appraisal. The results obtained from the study are aimed to help the researchers who want to work with Massive Open Online Courses and develop the MOOC.
