What is the current situation of MOOC practice in China's universities? At the China's Universities MOOC Development Forum held in Beijing, Tsinghua University, Peking University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University,Shenzhen University and other colleges and universities presented their reports about MOOC practice, which basically showed the status of MOOC practice in China's universities: the development of MOOC in China's universities has stepped into the implementation stage from the learning stage, with the characteristics of autonomy,cooperation and sharing. Currently, common problems existing in the MOOC practice in China's universities include: how to realize the democratization of education; how to achieve the sustainable development; how to enhance the learning experience and improve the graduation rate; and how to certify the learning achievements. How should we look upon the MOOC practice in China's universities? As a "foreign import", MOOC practice in China needs to explore some ways for practice based on Chinese local features: the first is the integration of information technology and higher education, the second is from the open courses to the open universities, and the third is fromthe plat form ofeducational resourcesto building public service platform for lifelong learning.
