The Telefónica-UPF Chair has just published a report analyzing the situation around MOOCs offered by Spanish universities till Dec. 2013. The report is in Spanish.
I’ve collaborated in its elaboration:
Oliver, M., Hernández-Leo, D., Daza, V., Martin, C., Albó, L., (2014) “MOOCs en España: Panorama de los Cursos Masivos Abiertos en Línea en las universidades españolas”, Cátedra Telefónica – UPF Social Innovation in Education, Cuaderno Red de Cátedras Telefónica.
I translate below the main conclusions.
By the end of 2013:
– Over one third of the Spanish universities had launched at least a MOOC. The activity was higher in public traditional universities. More than 100 MOOCs offered, half of them (aprox.) from three universities.
– The average duration of the MOOCs was of 7 weeks, with an estimated dedication of 4 hours/week. The subject of the MOOCs is varied, with a higher offer in Science & Technology.
– Most universities offered their MOOCs in Miriada X. Some used their own platform. Low presence of Coursera/EdX.
In addition, the report discusses current trends in Spain and Europe and presents a series of case studies of MOOC-related initiatives.
Please refer to the report for more details.
The study has attracted a significant attention from the media. See for example this Debate on the Spanish TV.
