Inspired by the ‘Hole-in-the-wall’ experiment of Mitra & Dangwal (2010), this work reports research on a new MOOC format, namely, the Self Organised Open Course (SOOC). This pilot study is a quasi-Randomised Control trial. It investigates the use of Artificial Intelligence and Learning Analytics to encourage ‘Mastery’ of topics through social learning, videos and quizzes within a Microwave and Wireless technology teacherless SOOC. Positive impact of the platform on learning gain by as much as 13.91% more than the control group was found. Due to social learning the enjoyment and engagement was also reported to be very high. Unlike in MOOCs, the participants experienced no information overload.
