ABSTRACT
MOOC has recently been a topic of research. Scholars from home and abroad dedicated their effort to examine the newly emerged matter from various perspectives. The purpose of this paper is to explore the present situation of MOOC study in China. Fifty-two journal articles published in China from 2012 to 2016 were selected as a corpus. By doing systematic literature analysis, the theme discussed and method adopted were studied and classified carefully. The results reveal that the papers focus on participants, course building, and suggestions on MOOC. Chinese scholars tend to carry out qualitative researches than quantitative researches.
