Exchange of ideas between RESET and ECOLearning european project

Researchers of the RESET team at the University of Valladolid have hosted a small meeting with partners of the ECOLearning european project from the Segovia campus of the University of Valladolid, led by Alfonso Gutiérrez Martín. In the meeting, Alfonso Gutiérrez explained how the ECOLearning have proposed an european portal to access MOOC in which about 40.000 education practitioners have taken online courses, mostly on pedagogy and technology issues. Several of those practitioners are now creating their own MOOCs and offering them through the ECOLearning portal. There are some interesting lessons learned from this ongoing project related to the difficulties of implementing collaborative activities at large scales as well as some limitations found in existing technologies, that are relevant for the aims of the RESET project. Thus, testing the contributions of the RESET project with a subset of the ECO community is a promising area of future collaboration.
