JMOOC science and engineering courses are 6 to 8 weeks long; other courses are 4 weeks in length.
With these unique membership and instructional features, and with effective government-industry collaboration, JMOOC has all the hallmarks of success in online education.
The second challenge JMOOC faces is related to their enrollment and client base.
Additionally, JMOOC faces a challenge in increasing the number and types of courses that will attract additional participants.
JMOOC's short-range goals are to increase the number of offered courses to 100+, university members to over 100 institutions, and enrollment to 1,000,000 students in the next few years (Fukuhara, 2017).
As of 2017, Japanese online education has but a few key players such as OUJ and JMOOC that have found their own unique niches, employed continuous strategic efforts, and gained support from the government and industry.
The JMOOC, on the other hand, is a membership-driven organization that has a strong relationship with the Japanese government, business, and industrial sectors.
