On the 4th of May 2021 the MOOC entitled “Civics 4.0: active citizenship and participation in the digital age” will be launched on the UNED Abierta MOOC platform. The course has been developed within the context of the Erasmus+ project “NEXUS – Promoting the Nexus of Migrants through active citizenship” and focuses on the skills and digital tools needed in order to be an active digital citizen, based on a collection of relevant concepts, sources, initiatives and resources on digital civic engagement and participation following a practical approach.
The MOOC is intended for anyone, especially students from diverse backgrounds, who are interested in digital civic education and digital participation. There is no entry requirements, all that is required is an interest in the subject matter and a B1 level of English, as the course is in English (a Spanish translation of the course materials is also provided).
The MOOC lasts 6 weeks, although every participant can take the course at his/her own pace.
The course content is composed of videos, readings and activities such as self-evaluation tests, forum discussions and collaborative tasks.
Subscription, participation and access to all materials are totally free, and participants who complete the course will receive an open badge.
