Abstract

Digital Education, in particular open online courses, plays an important role in providing free education to people who wants to learn. The University of Turin, with the financial support of the bank foundation Compagnia di San Paolo, has developed the project “start@unito”: a selection of university modules in a broad range of topics, administered through open online courses freely available. These courses could be also used to facilitate the transition between secondary and tertiary education and to enhance the success in Higher Education. In this paper we discuss the project, focusing on the adaptive solutions adopted in the preparation of the online resources and describing some results after the first nine months of courses availability.
