FoSaMed – Enhancing Food Safety in the Mediterranean

27th April 2023, 11:30-1:00 CEST


In the framework of WP3, the FoSaMed project organises a Training of Teachers (ToT) whose aim is to build capacities and to improve scientific and technical knowledge exploitable on the labour market. After a series of webinars and on-site workshops, which you can read more about here, FoSaMed organised a new online training workshop focused on MOOCs – Massive Open Online Courses.

A Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is a free web-based distance learning program that is designed for large numbers of geographically dispersed students. Typically, these courses consist of traditional class materials made accessible online, which may include filmed or recorded video lectures, readings, online quizzes and interactive learning modules. Typically, each MOOC includes a course provider and a course platform. A course provider is often a university, which supplies the course materials and instructors. The platform provides the technological infrastructure for course modules, user access and other learning resources.

MOOCs are important educational tools, increasingly used in the context of higher education, but they are also essential as instrument of informal and lifelong learning.

In this webinar we explored its application in different contexts and understand how to design a MOOC.
