miríadaX was created in late 2012 with a clear mission: to promote open knowledge in Higher Education in Ibero-America. A free and open knowledge that is transmitted and enriched by the network.
miríadaX is available to anyone interested in Massive Open Online Courses for free through an open unrestricted, unconditional, no cost, no barriers platform.
It is an excellent initiative promoted by Telefónica Digital Education -a company specializing in providing online learning solutions for Education and Training- and Universia-the largest network of Spanish-and Portuguese speaking universities since January 2013 in order to encourage the dissemination of open knowledge in the Iberoamerican space of Higher Education.
MiríadaX numbers are clear: makes available to its users and 1,345 Latin American universities a space where they can freely transfer knowledge and foster the exchange of experiences and ideas around common themes.
In this first stage of take-off and consolidation, MiríadaX, with participating universities, provides a multidisciplinary and general background, offering courses in a variety of themes, designed so you can follow at your own pace, where you can learn from scratch about materials that interest you, deepen your understanding or enhance your skills.
The advancement and progress of MiríadaX is incontestable: in the words of its top promoter, Pedro Aranzadi, the average number of registered students on their courses amounts to 7,000 participants, sometimes with peaks of 30,000 students in cases of courses that have achieved great success and prestige. They have a community of 1,350,000 registered students.
