Intelligence MOOCs Commons for Women and eHealth
In order to expand education and learning, the Intelligence MOOCs Commons for Women and eHealth of the WeObservatory (WeMOOCs) provides an annual selection of free Massive Online Courses (MOOCs) in English, French and Spanish, developed by the most famous universities and academics. The MOOCs included in the WeMOOCs are scanned and selected by specialized advisors and members of the Foundation, and cover three of the six UN official languages: English, French and Spanish.
In 2014, the advisors identified and selected 72 MOOCs in English, and a handful of courses in the other two languages, covering various topics of interest to women, such as nutrition, nanotechnologies, diabetes, epidemics, AIDS, and nursing.
In 2015, the number of selected courses increased to a total of 340, of which 276 were in English, 28 in French and 36 in Spanish. The courses were selected from 21 different MOOC platforms and are being imparted by diverse institutions from 18 countries in America (6), Europe (8), Asia (2), the Middle East (1), and Oceania (1).
Through the WeMOOCs, the WeObservatory offers a unique platform to improve education and training in eHealth and telemedicine.
