    Researchers at MIT and Harvard examined the behaviour of students who participated in the first wave of EDx MOOCs and came up with the following classification:  Viewers, Listeners, Optimizers and Completionists.

    I think the classification would be a bit different for a cMOOC such as ocTEL.

    Interesting research, although graph rather puzzling at first sight. Will need to read the report further.

    Coursera courses definitely ask about participants’ motivation at first log-in in the class. If I remember well, there is choice of three different learner profiles.

    Thanks for flagging this up.
