MOOCs to expand higher education and advance UN’s development goals: The case of Mexico
Palabras clave:MOOCs, higher education, sustainable development goals.
A review of MOOCs in different regions of the world is presented with emphasis in Mexico as part of regional, national and institutional policies to expand higher education and increase learning opportunities, within the context of the UN's sustainable development goals. Four common policies are identified in different regions and countries for leveraging MOOCs potential: Recognition and political will for expanding higher education and learning opportunities, acknowledge ICT´s potential to achieve these purposes, allocate adequate funding and promote collaboration amongst countries and institutions. Mexico’s federal education’s policy for using ICT in expanding higher education and learning opportunities seems not to be in line with worldwide common practice.
