Abstract:Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are getting popular all over the world. The popularity of MOOCs has also been observed in the Asian countries and in their languages. However, very limited studies regarding participation patterns, motivations and completion status were found in the context of Asian languages including Bengali. The current study aims to explore the above-mentioned issues considering the context of Bengali MOOCs as evidence-based literature is missing in this area. This study purposes to find out the relationship between completion status and participation patterns and motivations in Bengali MOOCs. The descriptive survey research procedure was considered, and data was collected through an online survey. The data was analyzed using quantitative analysis process. The results showed that the completion rate in Bengali MOOCs was 32.5% and there was a positive significant correlation between spending the time and course completion. Moreover, the learners were motivated to learn from the Bengali MOOCs where self-directed learning and self-regulated learning motivation played a vital role. On the contrary, lack of time and deficiency of commitment to complete the course were two main factors for non-completion. The study recommends redesigning the Shikkhok platform in an organized way like standard MOOCs platforms.
