The SCOPE MOOC (Massive open online courses), thanks to the strong collaboration with the Medicine Univeristy of Graz, developed the MOOC to cover the increasing need for professional knowledge, skills and competences in the care of older people, new learning techniques.

The SCOPE MOOC aims at closing gaps of basic knowledge addressing CKD in old age and its implications for medical management of older patients in general. It will address pathophysiological mechanisms that underlie CKD, will explain diagnostic pathways for kidney function with a focus on older patients and will explain the complex care management in a case-based way.

The course is divided into three different modules. The completion of all modules allow to collect 1,0 European Credit (ECTS). Following registration learners attend three different courses of 10-15 minutes. Additionally, information material is provided together with the videos. It is expected that students undergo a short self-assessment of each sub-topic (course), answering 4 multiple choice questions (MCQs), either Typ-A or Pick-N style. Self-assessment may be repeated up to a maximum of 5 times. In order to receive a participation acknowledgement at least 75% have to be reached at each quiz. Finally, an evaluation of the course is requested from participants for quality assurance of the training course. With provision of the feedback participants agree with an anonymous statistical workup and publication of evaluations.
