EMOOCs 2021 will bring together experts in the area of MOOCs and e-Learning in general from all European regions. In total it features 6 tracks covering different aspects of this area and additional workshops.
The Future Track consists of panel sessions, invited talks, and vision statements from relevant, forward-thinking figures in the field of educational technology.
The Experience Track brings together diverse stakeholders to discuss important issues, such as best practices in MOOC production processes, quality assurance, certification, and credentialing.
The Policy Track will address the extraordinary potential of MOOCs in addressing European challenges related to the modernisation of higher education institutions as well as for coping with more general political and social issues, such as labour market challenges.
The Business Track will address areas such as business models for MOOCs, the role of academia vs. commercially driven companies, or the integration of MOOCs into company systems.
The Health Track will address the current potential and future challenges of MOOCs in the health sector. It invites submissions on health-related online learning opportunities and MOOCs that can be either experience-driven or technology-based.
The International Track will take a look beyond the European borders and and particularly encourages submissions to present initiatives from Latin America, Australia, Africa or Asia.
The Workshops aim to provide a forum for exploring and discussing emerging trends in MOOCs in a more participatory and informal way.
Proceedings will be published online (open access), and in a print edition by University Press Potsdam. The metadata is harvested via provided interfaces from different platforms. These include Google Scholar, Base as well as the DNB, bibliographic catalogs such as the KVK or the VLB.
