« Marketplaces » de l’apprentissage en ligne : appréhender les stratégies des instructeurs

Abstract : Besides MOOC platforms, that are dominated by institutions of higher education, some platforms like Udemy allow anyone to host their own courses. These marketplaces allow course designers to earn money, but they share revenues with the hosting platform. We propose here an exploratory study of the offering of such a platform, Skillshare. We used a web scraper to automatically extract the data from more than twelve thousand course landing pages: number of registered learners, course duration, topic, and cost. The first analyses notably corroborate the hypothesis stating that course designers using these platforms favor concrete topics that only partially overlap with topics covered by institutions of higher education, and manage to attract hundreds, sometimes thousands of registrations, even when they are not free.
