Presently MOOC has become a popular medium of learning. However, main challenge found from MOOC studies is high dropouts or low learner’s retention in using MOOC. One of the solutions is by providing effective design of MOOC to ensure high quality course and for learners to have meaningful experience. Many studies are improving MOOC learning design to suit MOOC environment. However, designing MOOC is challenging process because of the nature of online learning. Moreover, the design needs to suit learner’s needs, at the same time meet the pedagogical goals. Interaction is known to be one of the main factors that can affect learner’s motivation and consistency to use and complete the course. Therefore, the interaction component needs to be emphasized in the design model. This study highlights the component of interaction in a MOOC design model which is under the transitioning factors and this study discusses the community, content, assessment and technology components. The study reviews on elements that promote interaction, elaborates the important role of interaction for assessment and summarizes the perspective of the community. The component is important not only to encourage learner’s retention and completing the course, but also for the improvement of the functionalities for the teaching and learning process.
