2012年由美国Stanford、Harvard、MIT…等名校掀起的MOOC(大规模线上公开课)风潮，对全世界的大学、企业、社会、乃至于个人所造成的影响，无远弗届，预估从2012到 2020 年将有1亿2,000万名学生参加 MOOC 课程，2012因而也被纽约时报喻为「MOOC 发展元年」。当前风起云涌的MOOC浪潮，也已开始受到企业界的极度关注。根据 Future Workplace 的调查，有 70% 的企业主管认为有机会将 MOOC 应用于现有的企业培训方案之中。但仍有许多教育工作者不知如何善用 MOOC 强化学习成效。事实上，MOOC 课程运作模式有别于传统eLearning 的学习模式，如何充分掌握 MOOC 课程规划精髓及规画有效的学习模式，无疑是所有想要导入 MOOC 于应用课程的专业教育工作者们最重要的当务之急 !
本培训课程专为想要深入了解MOOC 课程规划及教材开发的专业教育工作者所规划，由长期关注我国企业培训及eLearning发展趋势的廖肇弘老师设计，以创新培训学习模式，融合行动学习及个案教学法，协助学员深入探索 MOOC 的各种创新应用情境，解读欧美及中国大陆 MOOC应用的最新发展趋势，幷透过模拟情境演练，引导学员规划出最崭新的 MOOC 培训课程以及整体学习策略。
