ABSTRACT
The Communicative English (CE) of workers is still worrying for employers. Many employers carry out face-to-face English forworkplace training to curb the problem, but it is outdated, time-consuming and expensive. One of the solutions is to resort to online training in open online learning platforms such as a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). This paper aims to discuss the different instructional design (ID) models that can be used to develop a MOOC. The models are ADDIE and ASSURE, which serve as a guide in creating an online course and the winning model for developing MOOC is ADDIE. The discussion from this paper is sought to provide an overview for educators before developing MOOC for CE training and implied the importance of having suitable ID models as a guideline in designing a course. Future research can focus on combining ID models to create more comprehensive course content.
