On behalf of 

Global MOOC Alliance and UNESCO IITE,

we are pleased to invite you to the
2021 Global MOOC and Online Education Conference this December!

The Conference will follow up on the implementation of the Beijing Declaration of MOOC Development (2020), which recommended UN organizations, international and regional organizations, governments, universities and online education institutions around the world to deepen international exchanges and cooperation, accelerate the building up of infrastructure for communication, promote the openness and sharing of MOOC and online education resources, and jointly promote the setting of international technical and curriculum standards for MOOC and online education, joining hands to build, develop and promote MOOC and online education to better serve society.

Devoted to the theme “Together for a Shared Future — Leading Higher Education Innovation in the New Digital Era”, the Conference will share policies and practices in driving the innovation required in the new global digital era for the higher education sector, as well as to examine collaborative ideas and frameworks to build more open, integrative and resilient universities.

This year, we are excited to take this important conference directly to our international audience by going virtual (though, we will also be setting up a physical venue at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China)! The 2021 Global MOOC Conference will capture the interactive and collaborative spirit of the MOOC and online education, and will allow our global network to safely and conveniently connect with our livestream from home.

Theme:
