The time for online education

We have been working with El País newspaper to offer people in Spain journalistic analysis on the different aspects of online education and its impact on society.

Fully engaged in digital transformation

We assist other institutions and governments around the world with their processes for the digitalization of higher education, providing expertise and consultancy services. We offer them the knowledge and experience we have gained from over 25 years of developing online education.
The UOC has some 20 multidisciplinary research groups working on e-learning and a centre dedicated to educational innovation: the eLearning Innovation Center. They are all working to adapt online learning to today's new reality.
Likewise, the UOC is driving the digital transformation of education as part of its commitment to make lifelong higher education available to everyone.
