What is MOOC?

The Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) offers online courses for students.

These courses must have a  learning oriented structure, they have to be prepared to accept a massive number of students and provide a global access for them. Moreover, the courses must offer a free distance education.

Generally, the courses are supported by prestigious higher education centres. Gradually,  there are more Universities that join any of the MOOC platforms, or decide to create their own MOOC platform.

You can access to any of the MOOC courses browsing:


  • Coursera 
  • Crypt4you (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid)
  • Edx 
  • MiríadaX 
  • Udacity
  • UNED Coma 

  • Specifying the subject (Biology, Economy y Finances, Education, Linguistics, Mathematics, Chemistry and so on.), the date that the course will take place, or the language you want (Spanish or English), you will find courses based on your particular needs in MOOC.es
