Welcome to the website of the
Erasmus+ project MODE IT!

The buzzword MOOC causes in Europe both, praise and criticism. MOOCs provide to everybody a unique opportunity to enjoy higher education services for free, without having enrolled in a university, and have greater potentials to building up a digital knowledge-based society.

However, only about 5% of enrolled learners are able to complete a MOOC. Why? The fact is: learning via MOOCs requires additional transversal skills from learners, such as the ability of self-regulated learning, analytical and research skills, and advanced digital competence.

The vast MOOC attendees seem simply not prepared for open online learning formats due to missing competences needed to benefit from such type of studies.

The MODE IT team believed these competences should have been acquired by students already during their formal studies. The innovative MODE IT solution was: to integrate MOOC-based teaching and learning approaches into higher education curricula! Formal students had to learn via MOOCs and to increase in this manner not only their subject knowledge, but also train the ability of lifelong learning.
