Abstract: The high dropout rates remain a key argument of many critics of the MOOC (massive open online courses). A range of 5 to 10% is often mentioned in the scientific literature as the percentage of participants who complete a MOOC. The experience at TÉLUQ for Ulibre’s MOOCs has shown excellent performance in term of "persistence / perseverance" of the participants, which were about three times better than the average rates of other MOOC providers with over 33% of certification. Ulibre’s high commitment, great participation to the discussion forums and high certification rates are not due to chance, but are at least in part the result of a set of best practices and simple design rules that we have shared in this paper
