Abstract: MOOCs combines different aspects of technology with multiple pedagogical methods to achieve professional and competency-based autonomous learning. User experience is the interaction and mutual effect users experienced with the external environment conditions to which they can respond. Cognitive style is an individual's different traits. It organizes and processes messages in concert with individuals. The purpose of this study is to investigate the user experiences of MOOCs websites among college students with different cognitive styles. There were forty-nine college students divided into two groups based on their cognitive styles and asked to learn from MOOCs websites. The results show that there are significant differences on learnability between field-independent and field-dependent students, but there is no significant difference on efficacy, error, and satisfaction. Discussion and conclusion are provided in this study.
