The MOOC on MOOCs course offered jointly by the Commonwealth of Learning (COL), the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur (IIT‐K), and the Technical Education Quality Improvement Program (TEQIP), in the fall, 2014, had enrolment of 2,344 participants from 91 countries (1,688 participants were characterized as active based on volume of activity). In total, 310 participants earned a certificate of participation and among these, 111 participants earned a certificate of competence.

The course was characterized by its openness. Registration required no personal or demographic information (save an email address for verification). Participants’ desire for assessment once the course had begun was met, and the course was lengthened to accommodate more time for learning and to meet assessment requirements.

The MoM course was run on a beta version of the mooKIT platform, designed by IIT‐K.
