Two leading universities in Finland, Aalto University and the University of Helsinki, each offer a programming course as a free online course, known as a MOOC. These courses have been taken by thousands of Finnish-speaking students and have received outstanding student feedback.
We discuss the pedagogical choices of the two courses as well as the basis of these choices, which lies in theories of instructional design and computing education research. We identify features of these courses that enable us to provide students with a better learning experience. Drawing on our experiences, we highlight future challenges in improving our own MOOCs as well as others.
