The University of Hong Kong has developed a specific Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) in the humanities, namely the HKU06.1x Hong Kong Cinema Through a Global Lens. This serves as a case study to better understand the challenges faced by Asian film teachers who decide to produce an MOOC. Apart from that, this MOOC helps us to unveil the subtext of how Asia plays an important role in the development of MOOCs by way of sharing regional research, pedagogical strategies and cultural perspectives. Since MOOCs provide a valuable tool for higher education by making course materials freely accessible to learners around the world, analysing the performance of such courses benefits global education at all levels.
