MOOC Factory

In the span of a single decade, EPFL has produced more than 140 courses that have attracted 3’000’000 registrations. We now look at leveraging video resources produced in 2020.

MOOC stands for Massive Open Online Course. It is a combination of video lectures, exercises and assignments, open for anyone to follow for free. 

Most of our courses require 5-7 weeks to be completed. They are open for a worldwide audience but are also used by our students in complement to on-campus classes.

The MOOC factory offers support for the entire process of creating a course. Starting from the design the course outline, based on learning objectives and working backwards to define suitable learning activities and relevant material. 

Once the course blueprint is ready, video production can start in one of our studios. Instructors first get to familiarize themselves with the studio, and work in close relationship with a studio host who guides and supports them. 

Studio hosts are also in charge of editing the video and they interact with the instructors through a revision process. 

Finally, once the course is ready, distribution is organized on a suitable platform.

La MOOC Factory

En l’espace d’une décennie, l’EPFL a produit plus de 140 cours qui ont attiré 3’000’000 inscriptions. Nous envisageons maintenant de tirer parti des ressources vidéo produites en 2020.

MOOC signifie Massive Open Online Course. Il s’agit d’une combinaison de conférences vidéo, d’exercices et de devoirs, que tout le monde peut suivre gratuitement.

La plupart de nos cours nécessitent 5 à 7 semaines pour être complétés. Ils sont ouverts à un public mondial mais sont également utilisés par nos étudiant.e.s en complément des cours sur le campus.

L’usine MOOC propose un accompagnement pour l’ensemble du processus de création d’un cours. À partir de la conception du plan de cours, basé sur les objectifs d’apprentissage et en travaillant rétroactivement afin de définir des activités d’apprentissage appropriées ainsi que du matériel pertinent.

Une fois le plan de cours prêt, la production vidéo peut commencer dans l’un de nos studios. Les instructeur.trice.s se familiarisent d’abord avec le studio et travaillent en étroite relation avec un.e animateur.trice de studio qui les guide et les soutient.

Les hôte.sse.s du studio sont également chargé.e.s du montage de la vidéo et interagissent avec les instructeur.trice.s via un processus de révision.

Enfin, une fois le cours prêt, la diffusion est organisée sur la plateforme la plus adaptée.
