Abstract

Over the past few years, higher education has been introduced to the new concept of massive open online courses (MOOCs). MOOCs deliver free courses to thousands of students around the globe, and the impact they will have on higher education has become a topic of discussion. This study investigated perceptions of hospitality students and faculty with regard to MOOCs. The study found significant differences for several attributes and behavioral aspects. Overall, students expressed more enthusiasm compared to faculty regarding MOOCs. Perhaps faculty may have a deeper understanding of the MOOCs concept and the challenges that they may bring.
