ABSTRACT
As the term 4th Industrial Revolution emerges globally, various industries are moving rapidly towards it. Malaysia, one of the developing countries, is also embracing the 4th Industrial Revolution.However, with the rapid development of industries to catch up to the ever-expanding world, the Englishproficiency of non-native speakers is worrying, especially in the working field. Certain industries provide training for their employees to improve their English for Occupational Purposes (EOP), but traditionaltraining is time-consuming and could not cater to individuals’ needs. This paper aims to identify the benefits of MOOC for employees’ training. The findings discussed the benefits of MOOC. MOOC is indeed beneficial for employees in terms of providing the opportunity for self-paced learning, lifelong learning and professional development at zero cost. However, there is also an interesting finding whereby employers do not want their employees to use MOOC for training because the former does not want private and confidential information of the organization to be publicized. Overall, the benefits will be able to guide and provide insight for educators and researchers as it is important to know what motivates learners to use MOOC for training.
