In the context of vocational college public English education, the need for innovative teaching methods is ever-growing to address diverse student learning needs. This study aims to explore and develop innovative approaches to dynamic stratified teaching through the utilization of Small Private Online Courses (SPOCs). By embracing technology-enhanced learning, this research seeks to enhance the quality and effectiveness of public English education in vocational colleges. The study combines elements of personalized instruction, flexibility, and interactivity, aiming to provide a more tailored and engaging learning experience for students. Through an in-depth investigation, this research endeavors to contribute to the ongoing dialogue on educational innovation and improve the teaching and learning outcomes in vocational college public English education.
