Project #MOOCLIVE: What are the Next Steps ?

On January 26 and 27, 2017, #MOOCLive partners were gathered at the Fondation Brocher (Switzerland) to discuss the next steps of the project. An opportunity to make an overview of the next action to come.


In total, 6 MOOCs will be developed within the #MOOCLive project. Two MOOCs are already under production. Violence against women, initiated by Henri Jean-Philippe (Hôpital Cochin) will be available in July 2017. It gathers a wide range of actors and experts on this topic and will serve as a general public tool for preventing violence against women. The MOOC Drugs, drug use, drug policy and health, initiated by Michel Kazatchkine (ONU) will be available during winter of 2017. Transdisciplinary, this MOOC will gather academics and institutional actors to highlight the current stakes of drug use worldwide.

Two MOOCs dedicated to the economics of health will be available in the spring of 2018. They will be developed by Hélène Giacobino (J-Pal Europe) and Lise Rochaix (Paris School of Economics).

On September 2018, a MOOC dedicated to tobacco control and prevention for disadvantaged person, developed under the patronage of Anne-Laurence Le Faou (Inserm, AP-HP) will be available. Finally, the MOOC dedicated to global health security and more precisely theInternationalHealthRegulations (IHR), targeted towards policy makers, will be available in December 2018. In addition to this MOOC production, a serious game will be developed with the University of Geneva, to fill in the lack of high profile training on the topic of International Health Regulations (HIR). A first version of the IHR 2.0 simulator has already been developed for the OMS and a first test was done on May 24, 2016 at the Maison de la Paix in Geneva. >> Read more 


For each of these projects, the company ANEO will develop technological solutions to analyze the massive data generated by the participants. Advanced statistical analyzes will be carried out (data mining, machine learning) as well as basic technologies for manipulating unstructured data (Big data). The data manipulated are anonymized. A methodology test is currently conducted on the logs of the #MOOCSciNum on the platform FUN. We are happy to notice that this first test already showed the importance of mobile device for the participants located in Africa and particularly in Sub-Saharian Africa. The results of this study will be available in open access.
