IC-Health Final Co-Creation Activities

IC-Health partners have been busy last month. All partners and their Communities of Practices have been granted access to the first version of the MOOCs they had developed together. In total, 35 draft MOOCs have been developed and made available online to improve the digital health literacy of European citizens.

Partner Tallinn University has worked hard in the first few months of 2018 to put together the 35 MOOCs developed by the Communities of Practice. Starting from regular templates, they uploaded to a MOOC platform all the information that was provided to them in order to create comprehensive online courses.

Partners then organised the last co-creation activities with their respective groups. During these activities, cohort’s participants were asked to discuss and review the draft version of the MOOCs, and fine-tune them if necessary.

All MOOCs have the same purpose. They aim to improve digital health literacy by developing four skills. Specifically, the MOOCs aim to improve the way citizens find, understand and appraise health-related information online, and how they make informed decisions. The similarities between the MOOCs, however, stop there. The co-creation process allowed each partner to design each MOOC to meet the needs of the population cohort they were working with. This means that IC-Health MOOCs can be found in eight different European languages and for five different population groups: children, adolescents, pregnant and lactating women, elderly people and patients affected with diabetes.

IC-Health MOOCs to improve digital health literacy in Europe are almost ready to be shared and disseminated. A dedicated page will be created on the project’s website to redirect any interested citizen towards the appropriate MOOC.
