Abstract: The aim of this article is to investigate the factors that are influencing student satisfaction in case of neurology related massive open online courses (MOOCs). We analyzed data collected from learners enrolled in 40 neurology related MOOCs, by manually looking for information in these courses reviews. The main identified satisfaction factors can be grouped into the following categories: content related factors: course content, additional materials, assignments, external research and teaching - learning related factors (teacher presentation techniques / style): engaging, clear, coherent, knowledgeable, sharing / explanation, interactive, excitement, considering student’s needs, inspiring, sense of humor. Competences, skills and objectives pursued by neurology related MOOCs are also discussed. Analyzing these factors can be useful in new courses management (design and implementation) and also in understanding the needs (motivation, behaviors, perception) of 21st century learners interested in neurology related fields.
