Table 3 Summary of lessons learned about feasibility

From: The TDR MOOC training in implementation research: evaluation of feasibility and lessons learned in Rwanda

Definition: Feasibility was defined as completion of MOOC assignments
Main findings: 38% (37/92) of participants completed all requirements to receive the training certificate (Fig. 1). Largest attrition occurred at two points: (a) between enrollment and first quiz and (b) between quiz 4 and the final research proposal
Lessons learned and action items for future training:
1. Improve communication regarding course expectations
2. Increase time to submit assignments
3. Facilitate peer support by substituting single individual project for pair/group projects
4. Facilitate reliable access to internet
5. Provide video and transcript downloads to facilitate stakeholders off-line use of training materials
