Abstract
Due to the emerging popularity and significance of online learning through Massive Open Online
Courses (MOOCs) nowadays, it is worth to study the familiarity and perceived values of MOOCs OpenLearning
from the students‘ perspective. This study was conducted to identify the university students‘ prior knowledge
and experience as well as their perceptions about MOOCs Open Learning. By using the mixed survey method,
online questionnaire was disseminated via email to students undertaking various undergraduate programmes in a
public university in Malaysia, i.e. Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM). The study findings indicated
that there was a moderate level of prior knowledge and experience in using MOOC OpenLearning among the
respondents. The frequency of usage of MOOC OpenLearning applications also appears to be quite low among
the students. Further qualitative analysis revealed that MOOC is perceived positively by many as convenient and
easy to use, thus helps to improve their learning skills. Despite this, Internet accessibility appears to be the most
highlighted issue among the respondents. As implication, the study provided the basis about how effective
implementation of MOOCs OpenLearning can take place to address the undergraduate students‘ varying needs
and learning preferences.

Key words: MOOCs, Massive Open Online Courses, OpenLearning, Malaysia, Usability, Knowledge, Perceptions, Undergraduates, Higher education, Public university, Malaysia, UTHM, Teaching and learning, Online learning.
