MOOCs in the Education of the Future


This monographic tackles the challenges faced by MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses), which are mainly to give free quality education for as much students as possible, offering personalized training, improving contact between teacher and students, finding appropriate means of evaluation, measuring attendance, and attesting the level of completion through certificates, etc.

However, we need to bear in mind that this is not merely a technological movement, but rather the beginning of a more general trend that might transform the models that have been in place for the last century, making way for new pedagogical methods such as learning through exploration or even gamification. What we have before us are much more than tools for the massive dissemination of content; it is actually a phenomenon with the potential to disrupt, whose final impact cannot be accurately predicted, which is why various scenarios are contemplated in the monographic.
