They can be based on such diverse technologies as learning management systems (LMS) or social management systems (SMS), learning analytics, smart contents, gamification and serious games, adaptive learning, devices (Internet of Things, IoT; personal devices – BYOD; wearables), immersive technologies (such as augmented reality-virtual reality-360º video), communities of practice or electronic commerce, among others.
EduTECH Emprèn provides support to projects in developing their prototype or service, defining the business model and the starting up of businesses or entrepreneurial initiatives in the education and ICT sector with high growth potential.
The programme lasts for approximately six months and consists of two phases – a formal training course followed by tutorials personalized for each project, given at the UOC's centres (and transmitted live) by experts from the UOC and other institutions specialized in the sector.
