Within the Erasmus+ NEXUS project, a MOOC on active digital citizenship has recently been developed, with the rationale that, due to recent influx of migrants into Europe, a majority of European universities have a student population who are excluded from broader civic or political participation. In a way that is different from the typical MOOCs, that are designed and developed by a single professor, as a “translation” of face-to-face teaching practices in to a massive online experience, the NEXUS MOOC was conceived, designed, developed and reviewed in a fully collaborative fashion among six organizations from different countries.
The webinar will reflect on this experience, that was both extremely enriching for the participating groups and contributed to the coexistence of different perspectives within the MOOC, while being less effective from a production point of view. The underlying question of the webinar will be: can a break-even point between international co-production and effectiveness be found within MOOCs?
