<p>This study analyses mutual evaluation of pronunciation, in relation to the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). The course is distributed worldwide to people who are involved in Japanese language education at no charge. More than 35,000 learners have registered from 170 countries and regions (as of May 17, 2018). The purpose of this study is to investigate whether the learners were able to maintain constant participation in mutual evaluation, and the characteristics of their comments.</p><p>The research findings show the following:</p><p>1) The rate of the learners' continued participation in mutual evaluation was high.</p><p>2) Those learners who maintained constant participation in mutual evaluation continually provided comments with details or specifics (by pointing out problems and correcting method). Also, those who could not provide specific comments were able to point out details through constant participation.</p><p>The results show that learners were able to continue learning pronunciation through the online course, and that mutual evaluation facilitated their learning.</p>
