ABSTRACT
This half-day workshop aims at collecting experiences of MOOC designers and MOOC educators to discuss what has been done to support SRL and what can be done to scaffold learners in MOOCs, particularly MOOCs for language learning purposes (LMOOCs). For this purpose, it is planned to come together with academicians and researchers working on related subjects within the scope of this workshop to develop a student support framework in large-scale learning environments.

In this workshop, the participants should actively participate and take part in both the virtual session and the discussions that may emerge on social media (via Twitter). In line with this process, the main problems faced by individuals learning a foreign language with the help of LMOOCs will be examined following the experiences of the participants and the organizers.
