Education, whether online or offline, should be democratic. This article begins with a brief reflection of my personal experience of taking a Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) entitled Critical Thinking in Global Challenges administered by Coursera.org in cooperation with University of Edinburg in 2013. Drawing on existing literatures, I discuss why I found this course—and by implication, most of the mainstream MOOCs that are run from the global centres in North America and Europe—undemocratic in various ways. Then I go on to further discuss existing studies in sociology, cultural studies, and post-colonial scholarship in order to propose some recommendations that might be applicable in designing MOOCs, especially in ELT and Applied Linguistics.
