The main points discussed were:

  1. Review of the platform contents.

One by one the contents of each module/topic were reviewed and those responsible for each one were explaining the state of development.

  1. Review of translations.

At this point several partners expressed that there is a difficulty in making the translations due to the amount of material generated and that there is still material to be done.

  1. Improvements of the Platform.

A high percentage of students, that have tested the platform, have said that it is not intuitive and that the process of language selection and later returning to the content of the topic is very complicated. It was established that this is a point of improvement for the MOOC.

  1. Sustainability of the platform.

Regarding the sustainability of the platform, UNIBO team explained to the rest of the partners that the University of Bologna took charge of the platform and that this would not entail any cost for the rest of the partners. Another aspect dealt with at this point was the generation of certificates. To do this, two scenarios were raised, one without legal value and the other with legal value.

The main points discussed were:

1. Learning objectives and learning outcomes. What is going to be done? And, how?
The objectives described in the modules and topics were discussed. It was proposed that they had to be more homogeneous, but previously, the structure of modules should be organized. For this reason, it was decided that each topic would be transformed into a module and each module would have 1 or 2 ECTS.

2. Intermediate report. Who will do it?
On 15 th of July 2016, an intermediate report should be sent to the Spanish National Agency (NA). It was decided that this report will be done by USAL team, and the partners will send them some information required in order to complete it.

3. Train the trainers course. Content and proposals.
Lucca Ferrari (UNIBO) introduced information about the “Train the trainer course” content.
