Abstract

Objective: In recent years, massive open online course (MOOC) has rapidly become a novel type of remote educational model worldwide. In this article, MOOC was applied in the course teaching of veterinary medicine to investigate the unidirectional ecological attribute of MOOC. Methods: Classification comparison method was adopted to analyze the characteristics, advantages and relationship between MOOC and traditional classroom course, MOOC and national quality course, MOOC and flipped classroom course, virtual stimulation technology and micro-course. Results: MOOC was an excellent supplement of traditional classroom course, which contributed to fostering the innovative thinking and self-study capability of students, and promoting the interaction and exchange between teachers and students. In MOOC, computer technology was utilized to collect the complex and difficult cases, zoonotic cases and rare cases and design these cases into corresponding modules. The students could access to the corresponding case by clicking the module to fill out the vacancy and eliminate the risk of diseases. MOOC resource website was not only available for resource release and download, but also for promoting the interaction between teachers and students in a specific module, which offered convenience for remote experimental practice for students. MOOC was a pivotal part of educational system after graduation from university. The findings in this study prompted that the relationship between MOOC and alternative types of educational models should be properly resolved, striving to achieve interconnection, intercommunication and cooperation. Conclusions: MOOC is an excellent supplement of traditional classroom course, which cultivates the innovative thinking, self-learning ability and remote study of students, and promotes the teacher-to-student interactions.
