International Conference MOOC-Maker 2017
http://www.mooc-maker.org/moocs17

16-17 November 2017
Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala

==================================================================
The Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are a popular phenomenon in the
online learning world. Today many institutions offer MOOCs. This phenomenon
has not only created a new trend in online education, it also has been
adopted by a number of institutions around the world, allowing spaces for
research in pedagogical, technological and organizational aspects.

This conference will focus on the exchange of popular trends and research
results, as well as the presentation of practical experiences gained while
developing MOOCs; we invite researchers, technologists, and course
designers from universities and industry to share their approaches and
perspectives on key topics, including analytics and data mining,
assessment, credentialing, pedagogy aspects, gamification, cloud services
and resources, universal design, accessibility and technological
frameworks/architectures.

This event will be a reference MOOCs conference for Latin America. This
conference is organized by the MOOC-Maker project, an initiative co-funded
by the Erasmus+ Programme – European Union. The MOOC-Maker consortium is
composed by nine Higher Education Institutions from Europe and Latin
America.
