As a result of the rapid development of new technologies nowadays, there are lots of new trends in higher education. Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are one of them. MOOCs are online courses aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web. This paper discusses this MOOC trend and its implementation in higher education. Moodle is one of the platforms used for creation of MOOCs. In the paper we are also explaining the use of Moodle platform at University "Goce Delcev" (UGD) - Stip and we are discussing about what is necessary for one course to be MOOC; so we are comparing the characteristics of MOOCs with the course Computer Science that we are creating on Moodle aimed for the UGD students. Also, we are explaining in details the procedure of designing a MOOC, and show how these steps are applied in the creation of our course. At the end we conclude that the design of a Massive Open Online Course is not easy and that many factors should be taken into consideration and sometimes many people are included. But, anyway, the trend of the Massive Open Online Courses is present now and his appearance will grow even more in the future.
