MOOC's hype has been fading away but resources are here to stay. Online education allows people to structure their learning around their lives, learn at their own pace and only about what's important. We've been working on online education for awhile, generating content, managing courses and trying different approaches. During 2016 both of us worked on MOOCs, on different roles and subjects but with many common lessons learned. In this talk, we'll share details on designing and teaching online courses from universities based in Guatemala, what has worked for us and what hasn't, why it is important to keep moving the MOOCs train and the journey to turn talent into skills in LATAM.
