This research study is conducted to find out University Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS') undergraduates' perception towards Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) from the point of readiness and acceptance using an integrated model Technology Readiness and Acceptance Model (TRAM). Participants are UNIMAS' undergraduates of all seven faculties and one centre taking Malaysia MOOCs starting in September 2014 and ending on January 2015.210 respondents have answered a set of questionnaires to find out their readiness and acceptance towards this new technology. The findings acquires further initiatives to increase undergraduates' innovativeness in trying out new technology as well as giving out a deep complete comprehension towards understanding the technology itself (MOOCs).
