This article examines regional differences based on students’ participation, sociodemographic profiles, behaviors and learning outcomes. To do this, students were followed in a course offered by “École des hautes études commerciales” (HEC) of Montreal in their MOOC initiative called EDUlib. The analysis was performed using the platform traces (accessed resources, number of visits, activities in the environment) and responses to self-report questionnaire. Regionals differences were observed, which seem related to the country’s development index. The results suggest some difficulty in reaching these students, despite the fact that participants who register in order to promote their development seem to struggle to pass the course.
