Call to action: Run your MOOC on EMMA for free!
The EMMA project is launching a call to potential new MOOC providers who would like to run their MOOCs in a new multilingual environment for free. Requests to participate in this exciting educational experience should be submitted by 30 May.
The EMMA project
You no longer have to “physically” travel to an educational institution to participate in a course: massive open online courses, or MOOCs for short, have become an outstanding educational practice used by schools all over the world.
EMMA is offering you the opportunity to experiment with MOOCs at no cost. To participate in the selection process, potential MOOC providers should fill in the application form at here. Entries must reach us by midnight on 30th May.
The EMMA evaluation committee will make a selection from amongst those submitted. Selection criteria include the reputation of the teacher/expert/institution affiliated to a discipline, relating learning/professional or epistemic communities, and the number of languages in which the MOOC will be delivered.
Free hosting on EMMA
Selected MOOCs will enjoy free hosting on the EMMA platform and the use of a set of innovative tools for automated translation of videos and lesson texts, peer assignment, student coursebooks and toolbox, learning analytics, tracking and ad hoc survey creation.
Selected providers will benefit from professional communication services to improve student recruitment and institutional visibility. They also get the chance to become part of a community of MOOC providers who are willing to share their know-how and experience and offer support services.
Free hosting for selected MOOCs will be guaranteed until May 2017. Take a chance, submit your MOOC proposal!
