MOOC Técnico explores digital transformation

The course will focus on the key digital skills in which organisations should invest to take advantage of technological evolution.

The 5th Técnico MOOC course will be focused on digital transformation. The choice of the topic was due to the relevance of the subject, which is increasingly present in people’s lives and in organisations. “This will be our first online course that will inaugurate a series of extracurricular courses that will approach transversal topics on science and technology, with recognised relevance”, says professor Ana Moura Santos, coordinator of the project.

The course is open to all and will cover several topics through short videos “that will launch the discussion on the approached topics, including guest interviews, case study analysis and forums to discuss and debate the topics”, explains professor Ana Moura Santos. The topics are structured in three categories: customer experience, operations management and business models.

This course is mainly addressed to professionals who work in this field, potential entrepreneurs and all people interested in understand the role of the new technologies in public and private organisations. “I would say that this course may serve a broad public that tries to understand the impact of the new technologies in the current society”, says the coordinator of the project.

At this moment we already have 400 people enrolled and we are still a few weeks from the beginning of the course, which is scheduled for the 3rd of July. This course, like the other MOOC Técnico courses, is entirely free of charge. All participants are entitled to a certificate of participation as soon as they successfully complete at least 60% of the course.
