Inspired by the ‘Hole-in- the-wall’ experiment of Mitra & Dangwal (2010), research on a new MOOC format, Self Organised Open Course (SOOC) is presented. A quasi-Randomised Control trial (RCT) and a repeat RCT was used to evaluate Artificial Intelligence and Learning Analytics to encourage ‘Mastery’ of topics through social learning within a Microwave and Wireless technology teacherless SOOC. Learning gain of 13% more than the control group, where learners only watched videos and did quizzes, was found. Due to social learning the enjoyment and engagement was also reported to be high. Unlike in MOOCs, the participants experienced no information overload.
