Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) aims to fulfil the needs of learners who seek for specific skills, competencies and new knowledge in their career or for lifelong learning. To ensure the learners understand all topics in the MOOC, learners must complete the quizzes and achieve the minimum score at the end of each topic. Learners who achieve the minimum score are awarded a digital badge for each topic assessed and subsequently the learners proceed to the next topic. This process will continue till the end of the course. Learners would only be given 3 attempts for a quiz. If a learner fails to achieve the minimum score for all the 3 attempts, the learner will fail the course. However, the learner can sign up for the course again at any time.
MOOC can be a stand-alone micro-credential course of an accredited programme, inspired by an accredited programme or customised upon demand of the job market or the industries. It is also to recognise informal and non-formal learning.
