With the progress of science and technology and the rise of the Internet, the network education has gradually come into people’s sight. MOOC, as a new form of network education, has exerted an important influence on the Chinese higher education, and meanwhile, promoted the reform of higher education. In this paper, by analyzing the education idea of MOOC and the national educational conditions in China, as well as the impact of MOOC on China’s higher education mode, accordingly, the writer poses opinions and suggestions on the development and the reform of higher education in the MOOC era. “While education has been both open and online, the sizeable enrolment numbers associated with massive open online courses (MOOCs) are somewhat unprecedented” (Knox, 2014, p.166).
