UNED offers 17 new online and free courses in the education field
Sunday, 27 September 2015

UNED has launched the third edition of MOOC courses --developed as part of the ECO project (Elearning, Communication and Open resources), sponsored by the European Commission --, with 16 new programmes in the education field, aimed at all type of participants but with a special focus for teachers and educators.

The courses, driven by different universities and institutions, will be developed from October 5th. They offer updated and relevant content in the world of Web 2.0, and address issues such as the management of open education resources, materials design multimedia, acquiring strategies for managing online communities or the application of new teaching approaches and specific technologies.

EC-TEL 2015, “Design for Teaching and Learning in a Networked World”
Monday, 21 September 2015

The tenth anniversary edition of the European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL) was held in Toledo during September 15–18. Universidad Carlos III de Madrid was this year event organizer, with Professor Carlos Delgado Kloos, coordinator of the eMadrid Network, as the "Local Organization Chair".

In the tenth year of its existence EC-TEL is becoming the major interdisciplinary venue for the community of technology-enhanced learning researchers in Europe and worldwide. The theme of EC-TEL 2015 was “Design for Teaching and Learning in a Networked World.” This 2015 edition was again extremely competitive, given the high number of communications submitted. The acceptance rate for full papers was 21 %.

eMadrid Seminar on "The flipped classroom model" (2015-09-10)
Wednesday, 26 August 2015


Thursday, 10 September 2015


The "flipped classroom" model is being increasingly used in recent years, due to fact that producing video lectures is very easy today. This model promotes the viewing of video lectures at home or elsewhere by the student, rather than live in class, and uses the class time where the professor cannot be easily replaced by technology, namely for discussion, solving questions, and doing exercises. In this seminar, we are going to learn about three interesting experiences recently carried out in universities.

Remote and virtual laboratories
Thursday, 27 August 2015

One of the objectives of eMadrid network are remote and virtual laboratories. In this line of research we try to take another step forward in the state of the art so students, teachers and institutions can create, reuse, combine and federate remote and virtual laboratories, promoting interoperability between architectures. In addition, we provide greatly motivating laboratories that can be used in any type of institution requiring improved practical skills for better business development (both large, medium and small companies) and development on different devices and environments (college, university, company, lifelong learning, including specific issues for people with disabilities).

Serious games and simulations
Friday, 14 August 2015

One of the objectives of eMadrid Network are serious games y simulations. Thus, the main challenges facing current research on serious games for education, defined as an umbrella term encompassing not only games but also other highly interactive technologies, such as simulations, are addressed. In addition, we seek to facilitate the adoption of serious games, whose penetration in education is still limited, trying to improve the reliability of the methods used to evaluate the effectiveness of serious games.

Ubiquitous learning and supported on mobile devices
Sunday, 09 August 2015

One of the objectives of eMadrid network is "Ubiquitous learning and supported on mobile devices". As part of this objective, mlearning applications prototypes are developed by creating learning solutions through mobile devices that integrate other technologies of the project, as learning analytics and serious games; prototypes of augmented reality applications are researched and developed; and pilot applications and prototypes in non-university environments are made, as well as in both formal and informal learning environments.

Learning environments and MOOCs
Wednesday, 29 July 2015

One of the objectives of eMadrid network is "Learning environments and MOOCs", which involves several lines of research related to learning environments, particularized through Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), which have brought a revolution both in higher education and in vocational training environments in the last years. As part of this objective, technological and educational solutions to the main challenges for the adoption of MOOCs as a complement to higher education will be explored and provided.

Authoring and reuse
Tuesday, 21 July 2015

One of the objectives and lines of research of eMadrid network is "authoring and reuse", which is focus on deepening the semi-automatic semantic tagging with technologies based on semantic web in close coordination with the work on "Open educational resources, free software and open data", for the development of new mechanisms for OER search and retrieval based on the semantic description of these educational resources as well as in the framework of interoperability through Linked Data.

Educational technology present and future
Thursday, 16 July 2015

eMadrid project is divided in 10 lines of research, each of them with specific scientific and technical objectives. These lines of research are aligned with the topics of particular importance in the short and medium term on educational technology.

Along the following months we will publish a weekly post to explain in detail how each of the eMadrid network goals is addressed. In this first post, Carlos Delgado Kloos, the project coordinator, presents a general vision of the beneficiary groups and the activities of the network.
