A Course in Spanish on How to Create Successful MOOCs

The first course in Spanish on how to create successful MOOCs was released on November 18 on edX.org. This 5-hour, self-paced, free course has been created by Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and IBL Studios, with financial support from the Spanish Government technology branch Red.es.

“Cómo crear un MOOC de éxito con Open edX” (“How to create a successful MOOC on Open edX”) course contains four modules: Introduction, Methodology and Pedagogy, Video production and the functioning of the Open edX platform, MOOC Development and Management.

The launch of the course will happen right after an open seminar event in Madrid scheduled for November 18. Cases studies related to Open edX and research reports on MOOCs will be shown during that session. Joel Barciauskas, Engineering Manager at edX, will intervene, among other speakers.
