European Multiple MOOC Aggregator

The European Multiple MOOC Aggregator (EMMA) aims to showcase excellence in innovative teaching methodologies and learning approaches through the large-scale piloting of MOOCs on different subjects and in different languages. 

About EMMA

 

EMMA will provide a system for the delivery of free, open, online courses in multiple languages from different European universities to help preserve Europe’s rich cultural, educational and linguistic heritage and to promote real cross-cultural and multi-lingual learning. The EMMA team are taking a deliberate multi-lingual, multi-cultural approach to learning by offering inbuilt translation and transcription services for courses hosted on the platform.

 

EMMA is a 30 month pilot action supported by the European Union. The website will aggregate and host courses provided by European universities who wish to provide their courses in multiple languages. Secondly, the platform will allow users create their own learning paths by bringing together various units from different MOOCs.
