Louvain moocXperience is a project that seizes the MOOC opportunity for rethinking higher education at UCLouvain university and worldwide. MOOCs stand for Massive Open Online Courses: free courses, open to be attended by anyone interested in. The project is managed by the Louvain Learning Lab as a teaching and learning innovative project. It has been part of successive Digital University - Open Education and Open Science strategic plans since 2014.

The main goals of the Louvain moocXperience are to

  • rethink Higher Education by actively experimenting the MOOCs trend,
  • explore new forms of teaching and learning, online AND on campus,
  • explore hybrid and international programs (MicroMasters programs, virtual exchanges, etc.) and new forms of micro-credentials,
  • better meet the 21st century educational challenges,
  • share high quality academic courses outside the university walls - Open Education,
  • be part of an international network of high quality partners, through the edX consortium.


University of Louvain joined the edX consortium in March 2013, an event that triggered the launch of Louvain moocXperience. The project could develop more thanks to the sponsorship of Chaire Treetop by mean of Fondation Louvain (2013-2020).
