The emerge of MOOC, a new form of e-learning application platform, has quietly changed the mode of continuing education for teachers. The government’s encouragement of using MOOC with positive policies and the social demand for teacher’s continuing education are good opportunities for the application of MOOC in teacher’s continuing education. Besides, using MOOC has advantages such as providing a variety of quality educational resources around the world for the learners, meeting the diverse needs of teacher learners, providing a fragmented learning approach for teacher learners, the student-centered curriculum organization and so on. When applying MOOC in teacher’s continuing education, teacher trainers should design the MOOC courses carefully, starting from the course production, design of MOOC structure to MOOC video design. When applying MOOC in flipping classroom in teacher’s continuing education, teacher trainers should focus on the application of MOOC in pre-class knowledge dissemination, the application of MOOC in classroom knowledge internalization and the application in after-class reflection. So, the application of MOOC in teacher continuing education not only enables teacher learners to achieve fragmented learning anytime and anywhere, but also meets the individual needs of teacher learners.
