Massive open online courses (MOOCs) as a third generation distance education enable anyone anywhere to study for free in higher education. In recent years, various studies have been conducted on the position of MOOCs in education, but studies on students' learning outcomes are limited. In this study, literature concerning students' learning outcomes in MOOCs was explored with the aim of identifying a set of suggestions to design open online courses. The review was accomplished through a systematic search within scientific literature databases followed by a critical analysis with the main components of 3P (presage-process-product) model of teaching and learning (Biggs, 2003). Findings of the 56 publications were synthesized which resulted in the formulation of 13 course design suggestions in order to enhance students' engagement, academic achievement and lower attrition rate attrition. Some implications are proposed for further research and for providers to improve and enrich the current context of MOOCs to optimize students' learning outcomes.
Keywords: 3P model, achievement, assessment, engagement, learning outcomes.
