Massive open online course (MOOC) is an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web. Although there are many MOOC providers, they typically focus on the online course providing and typically do not link with traditional education and business sector requirements. This paper presents a MOOC service framework that focuses on adopting MOOC to provide additional services to support students in traditional education and to provide credit bank consisting of student academic credentials for business sector demand. Particularly, it extends typical MOOC to support academic/ credential record and transcript issuance. The MOOC service framework consists of five layers: authentication, resources, learning, assessment and credential layers. We discuss the adoption of the framework in Thai MOOC, the national MOOC system for Thai universities. Several main issues related to the framework adoption are discussed, including the service strategy and model as well as infrastructure design for large-scale MOOC service.
