To consolidate competences and know-how in MOOC-related matters and to develop MOOC technologies and practices, EPFL opened the EPFL Center for Digital Education in April 2013. The centre is located in the Rolex Learning Center. It aims to foster the adoption of MOOCs both within EPFL and by partners of EPFL. The Center for Digital Education has produced 73 MOOCs since 2012 and is currently preparing 26 new courses. We will start with a short presentation of the production process and staff involved in MOOC production and then visit the studio to answer concrete questions about video production, studio technology, teacher preparation, etc.
The Swiss EdTech Collider is Switzerland's first collaborative space dedicated to ambitious entrepreneurs transforming education and learning through technology. Located in the EPFL Innovation Park just a few steps away from EPFL's Center for Digital Education, we provide a modern co-working space to our members ranging from early-stage to established startups. Unlike classical startup incubator or accelerator programme, we offer ongoing support and access to ed-tech experts, industry leaders and investors.
