The trend towards training through online training processes is increasing. CES University is no stranger to this trend, which is why for 4 years it has been present in Miriadax, which is a platform for mass free online courses (MOOC).
One of the international benchmarks in virtual education is the Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexico), an institution that has a wide history and that has made a selection of the eight free online courses on educational innovation for teachers, among those recommended there is a MOOC of the CES University: ICT in teaching, designed by CES Virtual.
Catalina Calle Pineda, Head of the Virtual CES of the CES University, expressed “The importance of the MOOC 'ICT in teaching' is due to the interest of teachers in the incorporation of technologies in their work, which is now a worldwide trend, at this time a teacher who does not have technological skills, either in a face-to-face or virtual stage, it is a teacher who is lagging behind”.
Currently, Virtual CES has an offer of six courses that are available on the Miriadax platform: ICT in Teaching, Chess for health, Business as a life option, Ethics, Fundamentals of chemistry Y Tablet splitting. The institution continues with the commitment to expand its offer in this modality.
“The invitation for teachers is to dare to set up a MOOC, CES Virtual takes them by the hand in the process, since the issue of reputation is not only for the University but also for the teachers who are behind the content of these courses”Said Liliana Páez Cruz, CES Virtual Instructional Designer at CES University.
