In the conventional way of teaching art, which is a skills-based, subject areas are usually delivered through face-to-face teaching in the studio setting. The advancement of technology, through the existence of online learning platforms such as learning management systems and the Massive Open Online Course systems, has benefitted many educators in delivering their courses due to the flexibility and personalised learning environment provided by most of the online learning platforms. Regardless of all the constraints, especially in its reliability in demonstrating the learner’s competency level, art subjects can also be delivered through online learning. This study intends to observe the users’ experience in performing the tasks on the course page in an art course at Open University Malaysia delivered through the massive open online course platform at It also aims to observe the behaviour of the 616 participants in the course. The course has been conducted since October 2014. The study will report on the user experience based on the observation of the number of views on the course page and average time spent per second on the page. Both the number of views and average time spent per second are measured through the split (A/B) testing method to measure how those two groups perform, categorised according to the content.
