One of the innovations in education is the development of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). MOOCs provide an opportunity for everyone to study anywhere, anytime, and free. In addition to having various advantages, MOOCs also have various shortcomings or obstacles, especially in developing countries such as Indonesia. Universitas Terbuka (UT) is one of the universities in Indonesia that offers MOOCs. The main problem in MOOCs is the low level of completion rate, including in UT, which only reaches 14.95%. For this reason, we need to know what problems faced by participants and their expectations so MOOCs program can be managed better. This article is an exploratory study by collecting data through survey to UT’s MOOCs participants. The result shows that to get certificate and knowledge become the biggest motivation of participants. Another result shows that the biggest obstacle is participants don’t have enough time to participate actively in MOOCs. Some practical implications will be discussed in this paper to answer to reach the objective of this study.
