MU.SA PROJECT MOOC

The Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) aims, especially, to support museum professionals in improving their digital competences, so as to become more productive in the new digital era, efficient in collaborating with other professionals and organizations inside and outside of their sector, and successful in managing emerging challenges. The course is delivered in 8 weeks and is organized in modules that will allow you to develop a complete set of digital and transferable competences. It is a flexible, self – paced course that requires your engagement for at most 10 hours per week. Online tutors will monitor, assist and facilitate the learners’ training procedure. Once you enroll, you will have guided access to all videos, quizzes, and programming assignments (when applicable). You will have the opportunity to actively participate by sharing your ideas and questions in the discussion forum. Upon completion you will be given the opportunity to earn a certificate.
