The NAU Platform is the technical infrastructure for publishing and course monitoring services directed to large audiences. It allows knowledge producers to approach citizens, making information increasingly easier to access, while also improving their own services. Higher education institutions now have a high impact tool that will allow reaching new students, make wider scientific dissemination and increase international visibility.
The NAU platform provides access to online courses promoted by adherent entities. Users may enjoy access to high quality content in a collaborative environment in which knowledge and the possibility to improve their skills are offered. At the end of each course, upon successful completion, a certificate is issued and can be shared on social media.
The platform intends to stimulate a community of content production in a online courses for large audiences format, usually called MOOC – ‘Massive Open Online Course’. Entities from the academic and scientific system, from public administration and private institutions who wish to value the skills of large communities, can join NAU and support this knowledge sharing initiative.
