Abstract

In recent years, there has been a huge developing in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), in order to soften the learning and as a complement to the knowledge needed by the students. MOOCs have become an important tool in the universities to supply any deficiencies in students of first courses. In this context we present several MOOCs whose aim is to match the level of the first year students in mathematics, mostly in engineering bachelors. We have developed two MOOCs, one introductory to mathematical language, the different number sets and their properties and another devoted to integral calculus. We are also developing two MOOCs more, covering topics of differential calculus and algebra. The themes are developed in a didactic way with short videos that would help students to reinforce or strengthen their knowledge and skills needed for optimal performance in engineering degrees. This methodology is intended to enhance the motivation and improve the perception of the subjects of mathematics by the students, helping them to understand the main concepts of the subjects and avoiding dropout of unmotivated students.
