    EMMA (European Multiple MOOC Aggregator) is supported by the European Union and aims to showcase excellence in innovative teaching methodologies and learning approaches through the large-scale piloting of MOOCs on different subjects. EMMA provides a system for the delivery of free, open, online courses in multiple languages from different European universities to help preserve Europe’s rich cultural, educational and linguistic heritage and to promote real cross-cultural and multilingual learning.

    All courses can be accessed free of charge and are made up of video lesson units and assignments. The majority of courses are self-paced and users can construct their own bespoke courses using units from MOOCs as building blocks. EMMA provides a translation feature to view the course and video subtitles in the original language or in one of the translated versions currently available. Users can also collect bookmarks and comments and notes in a personal page, as well as build communities of interest or simply share learning resources and experiences with their classmates, teacher and other users on EMMA using the different interaction features. Most courses provide a certificate of participation on competition of the course.

    EMMA is a good initiative to promote European Universities and their teaching by providing access to free, open, online courses in multiple languages. The site promotes some useful learning tools and features which unfortunately don't always function as advertised. However, this is a good resource for discovering courses run by European universities.
