Mass open online courses (MOOC) are popular recently. Their advantages are obvious: training at any time, from anywhere in the world, from the best teachers, with the help of quality content. But is it possible to learn practical skills through the MOOC? The express-course ``2D + 3D design in AutoCAD'' proved that it is possible. However, for this purpose, when developing video lessons, practical exercises and tests, it is necessary to take into account the basic principles of effective learning in distance learning. Students of the course for a short time (6 weeks) master the skills of working with the program, learn basic commands and opportunities. At the 7th week, a contest of creative works performed in AutoCAD is held. The level of these works amazes and motivates the new launches of the course. The fact is that with distance learning there are certain advantages, but disadvantages are inevitable. The article describes the experience and conclusions that will help readers in developing their MOOCs.
