MOOC-based micro-credentials for teacher professional development 

Welcome to the website of the Erasmus+ project

Pillar 1: Micro-Credentials

Micro-credentials are short flexible formal learning courses or programmes allowing for a targeted acquisition of skills and competences. At the same time micro-credentials represent records of achieved learning outcomes assessed against transparent standards.

Pillar 2: MOOCs

MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) are online courses available for anyone to enroll in. They are designed for a large number of participants applying a specific instructional design technology that allows for time and space flexibility, learner interaction, and self-paced learning.
