Abstract: In recent years, massive open online courses (MOOC) is getting more and more popular in universities as a means to educate massive number of students. It can be served as an innovative platform to replace some components of traditional university class. The success of a MOOC subject depends not only on its contents. It is also important to consider student communication behaviours. It can indicate how they interact with teachers and their peers. This paper reports a survey on the electronic communication habits for different groups of students. It is observed that mainland China students preferred to use their personal email accounts than school email accounts. Also, they tended to use short message system (SMS) as a communication channel more. The survey result is helpful for us to design a MOOC subject with a better understanding of how to encourage student interactions.
