dc.description.abstractLearning a topic online via Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) has gained a lot of popularity due to their scalability and efficiency of knowledge distribution. However, participating in these courses usually means fully committing to the course for at least a few months in some cases. Providing engaging online education is a challenger for industry/non-academic trainees mainly due to their lack of time. In this paper, we describe a practical experience of online learning for non-academic audience in transport, logistics, security and safety industry. The proposed training courses are designed to be short, flexible and interactive to keep the trainees interested and engaged with the content. During any courses the trainees were challenged with different interactive tasks to emphasis on some important points. Results show that more than 90% of the trainees managed to complete the training parts of the courses they are registered to do and enjoyed their experience.en_NZ
