Teaching and learning in tertiary institution have experienced significant paradigm shift and new techniques are continually being explored for improving engineering course content delivery. The Fourth Industrial Revolution (FIR) is fast revolutionizing engineering course content delivery in industrial engineering with impact felt in all spheres. Having the right skills and strategies for online learning study assist in equipping the learners with necessary skills needed for the implementation of the FIR. Industrial engineering discipline deal with the design, planning, development, improvement, knowledge transfer, implementation, installation and evaluation of the performance of complex processes or integrated system of people technology and information. The objective of this paper is to discuss how the use of an industry 4.0 Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) feedback approach can transform industrial engineering course contents as applicable to industrial engineering course curriculum at the University of Johannesburg. The study was carried out through detailed evaluation of existing systems from which conclusions were drawn.
