Massive open online course (MOOCs) are transforming the era of distance learning education in a groundbreaking way that it has attracted a huge amount of attention from the media, education institutions, and education professionals. The purpose of this study is to measure the effectiveness of courses delivered using MOOCs in Taylor's University. The Kirkpatrick's four levels of evaluation learning model were adapted to measure the effectiveness of MOOCs. A descriptive survey of 250 learners was conducted. The study indicated that comprehensive study materials in MOOCs are useful for the learners as future reference. MOOCs are effective in the sense that it helps learners to understand a certain topic and apply it in real life. The program has met the learners' expectations, and they will strongly recommend the course to other people. Nevertheless, learners think that the study materials are sufficient for beginners, but advanced course is needed to meet their future job expectation. This study focuses on MOOCs in OpenLearning platform only. In the future, research can be expanded to focus on different MOOC platforms besides OpenLearning. Lastly, with the result obtained in this research, it will be able to contribute to the community of MOOC and institutions that plan to introduce MOOCs.
