III MOONLITE MULTIPLIER EVENT: MOOCs as a tool for challenges in society


The MOONLITE project (Massive Open Online courses eNhancing Linguistic and Transversal skills for social inclusion and Employability, Ref.: 2016-1-ES01-KA203-02573; http://moonliteproject.eu) and The Hague University of Applied Sciences would like to invite educational practitioners and policy makers to this half-day conference on June 20th in The Hague. MOOCs have the potential to overcome legal, linguistic and financial barriers for an important part of society as an key step toward social inclusion, employment and entering higher education. The MOONLITE project promotes the large-scale uptake in Europe of MOOCs and creates learning and collaboration opportunities for different student profiles and MOOC providers.

To this end this project has developed guidelines and tools to support institutions in the development and delivery of MOOCs and has also interviewed practitioners and policy makers in this area. The results of which are a series of best practices and recommendations. These results will be presented and discussed at the project multiplier event:


  • Best practice presentations on MOOCs for social inclusion and employment: the cases from MOONLITE.

  • Guidelines and tools for developing and costing MOOCs.

  • Policy recommendations for MOOC uptake at European, national and institutional levels.

  • Drafting “The Hague declaration on MOOCs as a tool for society” for a more viable and strategic role of MOOCs.
