Criteria for selecting papers in this study were as follows; a) experimental studies and review articles that focus on massive open online courses, b) published in the period between 2006 and 2016 and c) related to the research subject. Then the semantic units’ coding continued to reach saturation point. Finally, the main categories of sub-categories were segregated and the conceptual instructional model for MOOCs was designed based on the research findings.
