Abstract : Increasing popularity of Massive Open Online Courses has raised the demand of effective tools to author them. In this paper we propose an authoring model that helps novice and intermediate teachers to create online courses with less effort and improved effectiveness for learners. This model enables teachers to author pedagogically rich online courses with limited effort and time. And help teachers author with least effort and evaluate them. The pedagogical model made is a combination of Bloom's Taxonomy and ARCS Motivational design to help in making motivating and engaging courses. The courses created are ensured to be pedagogical compliance by a pedagogical evaluation and ensured effective for students. This model helps novice teachers in authoring engaging and attentive courses for MOOC learners.
