The MOOC - Networked learning is specifically targeted for teachers 👩🏻‍🏫 interested to understand digital networks mechanisms and their learning potentials.

However, students 👨🏽‍🎓 could also benefit from the MOOC contents, especially in terms of professional development. 

In the MOOC Networked Learning, you will acquire the ability to: 

1. be engaged in digital networking;

2. use networks (being “networking savvy”) for learning;

3. work and cooperate in an international setting with the use of ICT and social platforms;

4. deal with complexity in networked learning;

5. cross the boundaries in learning;

Before starting the MOOC, you are required to take a quiz, that you consider as a way to pre-assess your skills. According to the score obtained, you will be suggested to start from the foundation level, intermediate level or advanced level. In each level, you will read texts, e-books or PDFs, watch videos and forums.
