There are more than 5200 participants in the MOOC started on January 7th (scheduled for 8th March 2019).
Italians have joined numerous in the educational offer of the online course: almost 35% of students come from Italy. Greeks follow with 22% and Portuguese with 11%. If it is true that participants from the three main partner countries of the project are the most numerous, on the other hand you can find some unexpected data. Almost 11% of participants come from non-EU countries: primarily Brazil with 2.5%, followed by Turkey, India, USA, Ukraine and the Philippines.
Most of the students work in the museum sector, at different levels and with different tasks. But also in the world of communication and marketing. There are archaeologists, journalists, art historians, architects, and of course new graduates.
The next step of the project will be the closed-ended specialization course, with an expected start by the end of March 2019.
