Abstract

In National Ilan University, we utilize Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) as the courseware in a Small Private Online Course (SPOC). In this paper, we share the experience that how we manage and operate the SPOC course for the students in a part-time master program. We identify that the MOOCs can provide good learning materials. In addition, the teacher and TA pay lots of efforts on the courses such as answering the student’s questions and online discussion. The students in the SPOC obtain better achievements than the students who complete the MOOCs.
