Project Result 2

Leading Organisation:

Hellenic Open University

PR2 will consist of a MOOC design and deliver. The aim is to implement a MOOC in HEI courses to learn the NEFELE methodological framework (PR1) and its innovative approach to propose innovative teaching tools to support adolescents’ career construction in school practice. MOOC is an open access type of online course (Open Access), which provides for extensive participation via the web (Massive) based on the use of open educational materials (OERs). 


Design and deliver the NEFELE MOOC. The following sub-objectives must be reached:

  1. to define a course syllabus
  2. to develop a set of MOOC Learning contents
  3. to deliver Video Contents The MOOC will include theoretical lectures based on our framework.

The course will offer online materials (podcasts, videos, webinars). The MOOC will incorporate collaborative construction functionalities (being a cMOOC) of a shared corpus instead of transmitting a corpus “state of the art” through classic xMOOC designs. The collaboration will be controllable to avoid chaotic or non-controllable learning. Drawing upon the theory of connectivism, the cMOOC will facilitate collaborative learning and communication. Participants will also learn by making connections through communicating and collaborating with others. Classic pedagogical models apply learning in cMOOCs as not prescribed but as self-organized. In the case of the NEFELE MOOC, participants will not only drive the course but contribute to it in a loosely controlled environment by facilitators. This way, basic educational goals can be set and reached, and at the same time, the subject offered is provided flexibly. The assessment of learners will be multi- faceted. For the MOOC design and development, we will use formal standards such as ELOT:1429 and MOOQ’s Quality Reference Framework for MOOCs (based on ISO/IEC 40180). The MOOC Learning contents will consist of:

  1. set of Training Modules based on NEFELE framework (PR1). NEFELE Training Modules will sequence a set of modules and define, for each of them, the following elements:
    • Learning objectives: description of general and specific goals and associated competences
    • Learning activities: sequential description of the activities, definition of teacher and students
    • Pedagogical approach: definition of the learning theories related to the activities
    • Learning contents: definition of contents and associated materials and resources
    • Organizational aspects: hours covered, number of ECTS, and resources needed
  2. a set of Training Modules based on NEFELE BOX (PR3). The MOOC will offer specific training for practical activities.

Specifically, activities of design and application of game scenarios in the classrooms of middle schools. These games, possible using the NEFELE BOX, will allow playing with concrete objects with a multisensory approach to trigger reflection and story building by pupils in the school context. The project teams will specifically create the Training Modules. The MOOC will be developed and also offered through the NEFELE PLATFORM (PR4). The NEFELE PLATFORM will look like as a learning space hosting the learning activities of the MOOC online modules and other OERs. MOOC will be released in 6 languages (English, Greek, Italian, Spanish, French, Dutch). 

Tangibility and Innovation

NEFELE MOOC is highly tangible because it is a set of learning contents in multimedia form both in written and visual form. MOOC is widely applied. The innovative aspect is in a type of training implemented in the MOOC and the integration of activities based on TUIs methodology in education contexts. Moreover, it can re-build a lab activity (in the classroom) to expand and apply the concepts learned during the courses.

Expected Impact and Tranferability

The use of online technology is fundamental in reaching more people and making it available as a freely accessible learning and assessment tool. Moreover, the MOOC can make it more attractive the HE programs.
