ABSTRACT
With the popularity and convenience of smart phones and Internet, more and more users participate in MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) via mobile phones or tablet computers. Thus how to design MOOC for mobile learning deserves theoretical study and practical exploration. Based on the review of related literature and the assessment of the APPs provided by six mostly used MOOC platforms, we proposed six guidelines for the mobile MOOC design, i.e. clear navigation, simple layout, linear display, harmonious coloring, smooth video, and full interaction. To verify the rationality of those guidelines, we designed a corresponding survey to investigate the learners' perception and attitude toward the six guidelines implemented in one MOOC in China. The analysis of the survey result demonstrates that the MOOC learners believed those guidelines are valuable in mobile MOOC design and helpful for MOOC learning.
