Range of relevant topics: social learning, networked learning, MOOC experiences in business, higher education, k12, non-profits, developing countries. MOOC best practices, opportunities and challenges, comparing options between blended, face-to-face, and MOOC... the idea is to cover the whole of MOOC experiences and spaces so we can all learn from it. 

Description of the conference:
Organised by the Universit√© catholique de Louvain and P.A.U. Education, the event aims to be an opportunity to gather European actors involved in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), from policy makers to practitioners to researchers. This conference is the follow-up of the EMOOCs 2014 Summit. The conference will be held in Mons, Belgium. Mons will be the European capital city of culture in 2015. “Where technology meets culture…” has been one of Mons 2015’s main investments. 
The conference will include four tracks: Institutions, Experience, Research, Worldwide, and for the first time a pre-conference MOOC will be organised. The conference website can be found here.
