RESEARCH AND PROMOTION OF FREE SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS FOR MASSIVE OPEN ONLINE COURSES

The Asmoz Foundation, under the Department of Industry, Innovation, Commerce and Tourism of the Basque Government, has carried out the project called "RESEARCH AND PROMOTION OF FREE SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS FOR MASSIVE OPEN ONLINE COURSES” with the aim of examining the trend in e-Learning from a technological perspective and in collaboration with the UPV/EHU (University of the Basque Country), with a view to contributing towards its establishment as a valid model for permanent education in the Basque Autonomous Community; later publishing and disseminating the conclusions reached to Universities, schools, education agents and companies.

Results:
In general, the results obtained through the project have been:
- To research and test the different open source online learning platforms that enable the provision of MOOC-style education.
- To give teachers (indispensable vector) the opportunity to generate ‘massive open online courses’ by themselves, as this group has few conceptual and pragmatic references that suggest how to approach the work from this new perspective.
- To promote the implementation of this new trend in education among teachers, leading to education free of charge provided by platforms that are accessible through the Internet and focused on very large groups of people. MOOCs are usually based on up-to-date material, are focused on practical aspects and have a curriculum that depends on the interests of the pupils.
- To study the problems and technological needs that arise when defining and developing MOOCs.
- To disseminate the study carried out throughout the education community (Universities, schools, education agents and companies) and to provide solutions to the extent possible.
