On June 30 and July 1, 2016 took place the final meeting of the EMMA project (European Multi MOOC Aggregator), a project in which members of Edul@b are involved. The meeting was attended by representatives of the 11 institutions that are part of the project with a double objective: to conclude the tasks in process and to manage and promote the sustainability of the project once finished.
The EMMA project (European Multiple MOOC Aggregator) is a pilot action supported by the European Union that develops a platform for hosting multiple European MOOCs and offers a system that allows the distribution of free online courses in various languages.
Once the meeting ended, some researchers of the EMMA project, as the Edul@b members Lourdes Guàrdia and Marcelo Maina, participated in the EDULEARN conference, project participated in the EDULEARN conference, held from 4 to 6 of July in Barcelona. EDULEARN is held under the umbrella of “The International Academy of Technology, Education and Development (IATED)”, an organisation dedicated to promoting education and international university cooperation in the field of Technology and Science.
In this sense, EMMA prepared a workshop in which not only the project was presented, but also the results. In this workshop was discussed, among other things, how to represent cultural diversity in a massive educational environment such as the MOOC courses; how to manage the translations system in multilingual MOOC courses; student tracking forms for MOOC courses (records, questionnaires, social network analysis, etc.) and the implementation phases of a MOOC course: decision, design, development, delivery and documentation.
