In recent years, the universities in various places around the world have promoted Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Global educational institutions are providing learner-centered education in an unprecedented and diversified development model and speed. Since 2014, Taiwan has promoted MOOCs, guided colleges and universities to input administrative and student affairs, established supporting mechanism for MOOCs, and promoted the development of MOOCs to realize universal education. Most Moocs produced via systematic and prudent procedures. William & Diana (2000) deemed that digital teaching design should contain four major parts, namely, the evaluation and analysis of multimedia demands, multimedia teaching design, multimedia teaching development and implementation, and multimedia teaching assessment. Additionally, Hsu and Shih (2003) asserted that the most commonly adopted teaching design models were proposed by Smith & Ragan, Dick & Carey, Lee & Owens et al. In consideration of many models, Chang (2004) summarized and concluded that these models often contained five elements, including analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation (abbreviated as ADDIE). Hsu (2003) argued that the five elements were in order. Many detailed tasks could be conducted in parallel. And the steps can be merged or adjusted according to manpower, technologies, and relevant resources. As technologies advance constantly, video has become a major way of teaching material of MOOCs. However, this study paid special attention on how to adopt instructional design method to enhance course quality and development speed . This study was based on flexible ADDIE, and combined the characteristics of the models of Smith & Ragan, Dick & Carey, Hsu (2003) as the basis of procedures of course development and implementation. Based on our findings, the discussion and suggestion of this study can serve as reference in terms of MOOCs.

Thank you for this explaining video, it is great to know more about the open education context in your university, and more about Taiwan. I wanted to visit Taiwan for the conference, but fortunately technologies bring us closer.

It is very interesting to see the production process explained, –being myself in a similar production team for many years in Costa Rica– and very inspiring to see how these resources are made available in the open.
