Abstract: Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have been at the center of media attention and hyperbole since 2012. As MOOCs proliferate and continue to influence higher education, it is increasingly pressing to define frameworks for their design and evaluation. This paper proposes such a framework, grounded in CSCL and learning sciences research along with a discussion of the unique aspects of MOOCs as learning environments. Through the lens of distributed intelligence the framework defines distinct, but interconnected, dimensions of MOOCs that must work synergistically to maximize individual as well as collective learning.
