Abstract: Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) has gained a huge popularity amongst the current generation students mainly because of its open nature and its ubiquity. MOOC made it possible for thousands of aspiring learners to learn from their favorite Universities. Though this online learning platform has its advantages, many studies have proved that these massive courses are suffering from tremendous rates in students’ dropouts. This study surveys the major causes of dropouts and would try to link the MOOC failures with the learners’ stress levels. The study also proposes a framework which could be used while designing MOOC courses and will help MOOC providers to personalize the content delivery according to the online learners’ stress levels.
