CRAYON’S – CREATIVITY IN ACTION TO PROMOTE YOUNG ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Project N°. 2015-1-ES01-KA203-016056

PROTOTYPING THE MOOC

Playing the MOOC at Thessaly University (UTH) in Volos Greece.
The training course already designed will be transferred to a 10 hours MOOC. It will focus on the key aspects that are required to become an entrepreneur, following the contents created within the CRAYON's Training Course Intellectual Output (O2).

Partners will contribute, from their different profiles, with their expertise to provide the required input, led by UTH, who is an expert in the field.

The MOOC course will be published on UTH’s e-learning platform: http://eclass.uth.gr/eclass/index.php?localize=en. This course will be tested during the project development so that we can gather information about its adequateness and the degree of satisfaction of the course learners. This valuable information will be analysed by the project partners, and improvements will be done if any weaknesses are detected in the online training.

THE MOOC WAS INTRODUCED TO THE AUDIENCE

The pilot test of the MOOC will be done until mid-June 2017. Students from all participating countries represented in the consortium will test the contents of this 10-hours on-line course.
The main aim of the CRAYON’s training course, as it was stated at its initial design, is to provide you with the skills that are valuable for the labor market. Furthermore, by doing the training it is expected that participants feel more attracted towards the option of being an entrepreneur. It is expected that after attending the CRAYON’s training course, participants will be motivated, will develop youth entrepreneurial skills and will know how to generate an idea, identify their strengths, the target groups and know how to bring the idea to life by creating a business or a project.
The MOOC program has been set-up to be followed in two different ways 1. Individually or 2. With a team. In some cases, there are different activities for each of the two ways.
In order to maximize the impact of this MOOC, a network of national representatives, acting as Tutors, will help participants with the materials, as well as throughout the development of the course.
