UNAM online spirit, from Mexico to all Spanish speaking teachers and students

UNAM online spirit, from Mexico to all Spanish speaking teachers and students

This video was recorded at OCWC Global Conference, Ljubljana 2014. Nowadays, education is a lifelong process that is not only carried out in the classroom. With the rise of mobile technology, it has become possible to study and learn almost everywhere: in the office, at home and even while traveling. While this kind of education is now possible and valued, there is still a lot of work to do in order to position online learning at the level of quality and prestige that traditional classroom education possesses. National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) has a decade of experience in a tremendous investment of effort and resources that support the importance of online education. In this paper we will talk about different initiatives at UNAM: the "Learning University Network" ("Red Universitaria de Aprendizaje", RUA), which will be the tool for relating educational resources with the current curricula; MOOCs; learning apps; the Mathematics Institutional Learning Improvement Program; and "All UNAM online" ("Toda la UNAM en Línea") that aims to make all of our public domain content available to worldwide users under an open access policy.
