Resumen

Los cursos masivos y abiertos en línea (MOOC, por sus siglas en inglés Massive, Open Online Courses) se presentan como una modalidad educativa innovadora, económica y de fácil acceso, que ofrece la oportunidad de democratizar la educación en nuestro tiempo. Si bien el interés en estos cursos está en aumento, la tasa de participación de los estudiantes disminuye significativamente a medida que avanzan en las actividades, por lo que la eficiencia terminal suele ser baja. Este estudio cualitativo con diseño de caso múltiple estudió el compromiso, la motivación y la persistencia de los participantes de xMOOC a través del análisis de voces detalladas y descripción profunda de las perspectivas de los participantes, para comprender mejor las formas en las participan de esta modalidad educativa. Los hallazgos revelaron diferencias entre los grupos de alto, medio y bajo rendimiento en las distintas dimensiones del compromiso y persistencia, así como semejanzas en las necesidades psicológicas básicas de competencia, autonomía y relación. Aunque la muestra fue pequeña, fue posible hacer recomendaciones para la toma de medidas específicas con respecto al diseño, la política, la práctica, la teoría y la investigación posterior en cursos en línea masivos y abiertos.
