The research conducted a systematic review on peer reviewed literature of Massive Open Online courses that encapsulated the finding of more than 40 articles by employing the procedure of meta-analysis and primary-analysis in the bid of addressing the research question is MOOCs a way out to African Institutions An open code context method was applied to validate the articles for the sake of comparisons. The validation result shows a certain level of overlapping based on the Open Code Context procedure on the reviewed literature researched which led to meta-analysis that minimized the overlap. The primary data collected have been analyzed using the primary-analysis procedure. Even though the size of the random effect means was as minimum as 0.23 hence a significant difference from zero statistically. A heterogeneous distribution of fixed effect model was applied to the primary- analysis and the mean effect size was 0.21 and 0.22 using the random effect model. The result the gaps the implication and the prospect future of the research was particularized and discussed.
