Abstract: The development of MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) has attracted public attention since 2012 by setting its goal to provide high quality education at low cost. This paper explores some ways of integrating existing MOOCs into post-secondary curricula from an instructional designer’s perspective, and discusses the curriculum and instructional design supports needed to benefit from the educational innovation. Existing MOOCs could be integrated in post-secondary curricula in several ways: 1) Using MOOC components as learning objects; 2) Flipping classroom with MOOCs; 3) Developing challenge courses for MOOCs; 4) Transferring credits from MOOCs; 5) Providing learner services to MOOC participants.
