An experiment into the impact of weekly course structures

Posted by: Jason Brewster - Posted on:

Hypothesis

We believe that …
Content that is structured in weekly blocks will improve completion rates.

How critical is this hypothesis?
Medium

Test

To verify that, we will…

  • Run a bitesize learning offer that groups content into at least 3 weeks of material
  • Send weekly email reminders
  • Deliver a commissioned course with a weekly structure and analyse feedback.

Test cost:
Low

Test reliability:
High

Metric

And measure…

  • Engagement along the weekly schedule and compare completion rates with participants accessing material on MOOCs without a weekly schedule.
  • Activity prompted by email reminders

Time requirement:
Medium

Criteria

We are right if…
There is a higher than expected completion rate from those following a course with a schedule and weekly course emails provoke engagement.
