IEEE Learning with MOOCS


LWMOOCS 2021 - The 4th Industrial Revolution:
From the Pandemic to the Remote World

The IEEE LWMOOCS Conference provides academic and industry professionals the opportunity to discuss research related to MOOC technologies and to discuss the practical aspects of creating and offering MOOCs to diverse worldwide audiences.

Now in its eighth edition, LWMOOCS is a respected international forum to collaborate, share, network, learn, and display the latest advances in MOOCs. This edition will be the first hybrid LWMOOCS conference in Latin America, and it aims at spreading the MOOC movement while involving new institutions to enhance teaching and learning through technology.

Topics for Discussion

LWMOOCS 2021 calls for submissions from a variety of disciplines and topics. All submissions will be double-blind peer-reviewed, and a selection will be chosen to present in our vibrant program that maximizes time for discussion and participation through a single-track threaded with poster sessions, paper presentations, shorter lightning-round presentations, keynote presentations, and lightning talks from leading experts.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • The role of MOOCs shaping the 4th Industrial Revolution
  • Expanding the learner community through MOOCs
  • Social implications of MOOCs
