Abstract [en]

Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have launched a scale shift in higher education, with several individual MOOCs now boasting tens or hundreds of thousands of participants worldwide. Our MOOC on the principles of functional pro-gramming has more than 100,000 registered students to date, and boasts one of the highest rates of completion (19.2%) for its size. In this paper, we describe our experience organiz-ing this popular MOOC, and demonstrate how providing in-novative supporting tools (IDE plugins, testing frameworks, interactive build tools, automated cloud-based graders, style checkers) and considering key human-computer interaction factors potentially contributed to this markedly high com-pletion rate. We collect an unprecedented volume of course statistics and survey results and have made them available, along with scripts for generating interactive web-based vi-sualizations, as an open-source project.
