MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) are an important development in open and distance learning in the past years. Learners can take lectures from professors from top-ranking universities in the world. In addition to the high quality of the courses, there is an economic advantage for learners; they are for free. Since MOOCs are now having a great impact on education, the number of studies has been growing. When learners complete the course, they can get a certificate. However, there are not many studies on how a MOOC is planned and developed. The aim of this paper is to enhance our understanding of MOOCs by reporting and sharing our attempts at the Innovation Center for Educational Resource (ICER) at Kyushu University to develop a content of a MOOC.
