Abstract

Started in 2008, the new Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) paradigm has brought challenges and innovation at all levels of education, aiming to respond to the most pressing learning needs, generated by the new development policies and rapid evolution of the technology. This paper reports on a project proposed by a group of universities and organizations specialized in training, research and consultancy with the scope to develop and implement an innovative learning system in entrepreneurship. The project is built on a package of MOOCs targeting the young entrepreneurs’ learning needs in the context of „Smart cities” policies. The article presents the project concepts and the development and implementation steps, from MOOCs design, pilot phase, consultancy activities, impact study to proposals for national policies and accreditation. This work could be a foundation for developing new programmes and customized training courses on specific learning needs to support the „Smart cities” interventions.
