Unlike traditional online courses with a formal curriculum offered by university lecturers, MOK courses do not have a curriculum and are often developed and facilitated by ordinary people. These ordinary people share knowledge in their respective fields and gain this experience through the online MOK platform (e.g. Ximalaya FM). For example, you can spend 200 Chinese yuan (about $ 30) on courses through the MOK platform on job search skills. This course can be offered by someone who has worked as a human resources manager for over ten years.

TopKlout highlighted the most popular courses for sharing experiences and knowledge such as financial investments and business skills development. In particular, 62.7% of MOK customers are taking courses related to entrepreneurship and financial investment, and 52.9% of customers are paying courses related to competitiveness improvement.

In addition, the MOK platform creates a discussion section for each course and allows you to share your thoughts, experiences, and interests with the moderator or other students.
