But what is a MOOC?
The acronym MOOC are "Massive Open Online Course" ie massive open online course. This means that the course is open to everyone and is 100% online.
In fact it is a course in which teaching is taught through video. In particular of 31 training videos for about 5 minutes on average each test type exercises and a final exercise that can go to work from day one (this is one of the improvements we have made over the previous edition).
Why an SEO MOOC?
Well, the SEO has changed a lot during this 2016, the large deployment of semantic responses from Google, the creation of the Knowledge Graph, changes in Pinguin, etc. So along with Helena Casas decided it would be nice to create a series of videos explaining today, how SEO works. Now this is already the second edition.
MOOC How does SEO work?
The MOOC consists of short videos in which deepens in each of the aspects that affect SEO. The course is organized in modules formed by 2 or 3 videos. After each module an online test is performed to ensure that the student makes a progression in their knowledge.
At the end of MOOC students will be able to realize the strategic SEO plan for a company ... and in fact, this is the final exercise.
The course lasts 6 weeks.
Does SEO MOOC free or paid?
Como la mayor parte de MOOC, éste puede realizarse de forma gratuita y obtener así el certificado de “Participación en curso de SEO: Posicionamiento en Buscadores”, pero puesto que el curso se imparte dentro de la plataforma universitaria MiriadaX, se ofrece también un certificado oficial, previo pago de su coste, a aquellos inscritos que lo soliciten y que hayan logrado el 100% de todos y cada uno de los módulos del curso. Este certificado reconoce la superación, con éxito, del curso. Puede descargarse como un diploma en formato PDF y como un badge, que además, se muestra en la plataforma y puede exportarse a “Mozilla Open Badges”. El coste del certificado de superación de este curso es de 40 € (impuestos incluidos).

Does the MOOC can be validated by a subject of a Master?
