Massive Open Online Courses

A Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is a free online course intended for a large number of participants, who could come from diverse cultural backgrounds and different geographical areas. While being university-level courses, MOOCs are deliberately aimed at reaching a wider and more widespread audience. They make use of different tools to get students engaged, such as video- lectures, interactive activities and social media.

Students can take courses from professors from all around the world, at their own pace and completely for free. With classes of virtually thousands of students, professors and teachers could improve their didactical approach using digital tools. MOOCs can bring higher education virtually to everyone and everywhere.

In order to improve its presence at international level, the University of Padova has decided to join the MOOC world and to produce some courses held in English, as part of a new strategy on education and distance learning where innovative pedagogical techniques are needed.
