ABSTRACT
This study explores the research trends of MOOCs to gain a deeper understanding of the MOOC phenomenon. It also aims to question whether or not content is taken into account in these studies, especially those produced between 2012 and 2018. The analysis reveals that multiple frameworks were adopted to address research questions that essentially focused on learning processes, predictors of retention, learning experiences and course design. Our study also shows that content was little considered as a research object.
