Hands-On ICT – helping teachers design digital learning tools
This EU-funded Massive Open Online course (MOOC) gives teachers the skills and knowledge to build their own online courses and modules. New education technologies have the potential to improve the delivery of education by offering the flexibility for learners to study anytime, anywhere, by encouraging a more personal and cooperative kind of learning and by opening up new resources such as video. The Hands-On MOOC lasts five weeks, over which a participant designs, develops and tests online learning activities related to an educational problem of their choosing. The project was led by Fundació per a la Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, an online university based in Barcelona, Spain. Partners from Greece, the Netherlands, Slovenia and the United Kingdom helped in the development and promotion of the Hands-On MOOC.Watch the video.
