Building a R.I.C.H. Brand in 10 Hours: Teaching Sustainability Concepts through Thai MOOC

Varintra Sirisuthikul

Abstract—Global educators in higher education are increasingly using massive open online courses (MOOCs) as a platform to convert traditional degree programs into short courses and certification programs. This study aims to investigate how Thai MOOCs were created and delivered, to teach learners about sustainability, a topic that academics, policymakers, practitioners, and the public in Thailand are interested in. A mixed methods approach was used to evaluate the creation and delivery of a sustainability course in Thai MOOC Platform. According to the findings, most participants in the instructor-led course were satisfied with their course experience. The format of the course, the complexity of the material, and how well a student interacted with the instructors were all factors that affected how well they could complete the course. The course’s survey revealed that Thai MOOC learners came from a variety of backgrounds. This demonstrates how crucial course personalization is for enabling self-paced online learning.
