ABSTRACT
MOOC and flipped classes are models of instruction which have sprung up in the last few years, in educational circles all over the world. In the School of Physics and Engineering at Tongji University, we have integrated a flipped class into a MOOC teaching method, which is called a 'flipped' MOOC class. The aim of this paper is to assess whether this improves the quality of instruction in university physics classes and enhances student performance. Two second-year physics classes were randomly chosen as the research subjects, with one class being taught in the conventional way and the other with the flipped MOOC method. In order to guarantee a reliable foundation for comparing students' learning effectiveness in these two approaches, we analysed the rationality of the teaching process and the evaluation method. After a correlation analysis of the students' records for both classes, we concluded that the flipped MOOC class showed an enhanced teaching effect and better student grades than the conventional class. In the process, we encountered some unexpected problems. So, we figured out why they were happening and reflected on how we could handle these difficulties if we wanted to promote quality instruction and improve students' ability by this flipped MOOC approach.
