E-Seniors and MOOCs

Since 2016, E-Seniors participates in designing and creating MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses).  With our MOOCs we aim atenabling the adult learners to discover the possibility for lifelong learning via virtual training but also at raising the public awareness among senior citizens about varied topics related to active ageing, wellness and health. 

All our MOOCs use the blended learning approach including the both didactic learning materiel (videos, presentations and texts) and practical exercises (in the form of quiz and group activities). Each MOOC proposes several lessons that focus on a specific content around the general topic. During the training, new lessons are launched every two weeks onour virtual learning space, and the learners can follow the lessons remotely at moment that suits the best form them.

Also, our MOOC platforms enable the registered learners to exchange with each other or with the pedagogical teams. These MOOCs are free of charge.

These MOOCs are international cooperation projects that receive support from the EIT Health (European Institute of Innovation and Technology for Health):
