With the development of economic globalization, the modern society sets more strict requirements of the comprehensive ability of English and the multicultural communication ability for the college students. However, in China, the prevailing teaching model of college English is a combination of classroom teaching with the aid of multimedia equipment and the students’ autonomous online learning. Despite its comparative advantages over the traditional teaching model, it still has a lot of shortcomings. For instance, the students are not eager enough to learn, less disciplined, and have less time for the knowledge internalization. The arrival of MOOC era provides a new perspective for solving the above problems. This thesis first makes an feasibility and risk analysis for the application of the MOOC concept on the college English teaching for non-English majors, then explores a teaching model of college English teaching which is suitable for the regular universities in China so as to create a better opportunity for students to enjoy the learning resources from the top universities in the world, thus achieving the goal of improving students’ comprehensive language application ability.
