SPOC (small private online course) has recently evolved into a typical representative in post-MOOC (massive open online courses) times. Current researches about SPOC mainly focus on blended learning mode, teaching process, and teaching mode etc., paying less attention to online behaviors of learners. Based on online platforms of the general knowledge course Game Theory, this paper analyzes and researches online behaviors of SPOC learners. In addition, this paper summarizes differences of SPOC and MOOC in online learning behaviors by collecting online learning behavioral data of 145 learners and investigating their online behavioral characteristics during their learning process. The research reveals, learners are fond of video media in terms of the communication form, tend to answer questions instead of coming up with their own questions in terms of interactions, and focus on quizzes and homework due to pressures of credits.
