Technological solutions
for an open and collaborative approach

We promote
a mobile lecture room

We are pioneers in using mobile devices in our training programmes. We believe that seamless connectivity is a unique opportunity to learn inside and outside the lecture room, accessing content anywhere at any time. Over a thousand students have already trained at EOI through smartphones and tablets that we have included in their programmes. All with Android open-source software in the EOI open knowledge community.

We go beyond
the virtual
lecture room

Teaching is something that is expanded from the physical lecture room to the virtual network. We use Moodle, the most popular open-source software in educational institutions at an international level, and we supplement this with Wimba multi-user videoconferencing, which allows audio-visual interaction between teachers and students from anywhere in the world. Both Moodle and Wimba also help us to reduce our paper consumption, bringing us closer to our concept of a sustainable economy.

Our blogosphere,
a window
to approach knowledge

We view blogs as a way of enriching knowledge. Not only because they are a window through which we can publish content that can be read from anywhere in the world, but also for the dialogue they allow. In the school, we want to give you a voice in your own space, so you are part of the EOI blogosphere made up of students, teachers and programme directors. Through your blog you can build your digital identity as an expert in your field of knowledge and manage your professional future in digital networks.

Our lecture rooms, workshops
where you create

Our lecture rooms are open-innovation dynamic workshops where theoretical contents are activated in collaborative projects with techniques to stimulate creativity. Through Design Thinking methodology we promote the generation of new ideas geared towards becoming a viable business. Students also manage their open projects through Google Sites technology, which allows them to start building their brand identity and show their work in progress.

We facilitate
the expansion
of knowledge

We believe in a knowledge community within a global society in which everyone can enhance themselves besides becoming nourished. Both our educational content, as well as our research, student work, teaching materials and extracurricular activities are managed through open technologies. This principle includes our content having a Creative Commons license ensuring it is spread. Because we want to stimulate new ways of learning, spreading knowledge and enjoying. We are a public institution and we build for the public. We have already shared over 1,500 pieces of digital content in our archive collections: Savia (for publications and books) and Mediateca (for audiovisual content).

Networked
lecture rooms,
more social and open
lecture rooms

We know that it is increasingly important to be part of the digital environment, to know how to communicate in it and make the most of the web as a tool for connecting people. Social networks are part of our learning strategy and a standard tool in the professional development of our students. We encourage a natural use: creating profiles in each network to begin managing a personal brand. We mainly use: Facebook for a more social use among school students, LinkedIn for networking and professional profiles and Twitter as a more spontaneous and less mediated communications channel.
