MOONLITE: MOOCs enhancing linguistic and transversal skills for social inclusion & employability

The MOONLITE project (2016 – 2019) has been designed to widen and improve the HEIs teaching for registered HEI students, create new educational pathways for refugees  and build entrepreneurial and language skills among those two groups.

Specifically, the consortium aims to:
-Identify opportunities and barriers in recognizing  Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)-based learning for students and refugees
-Create institutional and cross-institutional scenarios to exploit MOOCs for credit-bearing HEI courses & future employability amongst students and refugees
-Implement a set of scenarios in partner HEIs and amongst our partnership reaching 175 learners, refugees and registered students
-Create a cost-benefit analysis tool, allowing Higher Education Institutions to calculate the impact of MOOC-provision on their triple bottom lines (financial, environmental, social)
-Run an open online course targeted at MOOC providers and refugee support groups on how to design and utilize MOOCs for refugees while make learning resources available beyond course duration
-Create a vision and recommendations, aimed at European policy makers and institutional leaders, for a more viable and strategic role of MOOCs in European HEIs.
