Creating a course for teaching project management online in a full online distance-learning environment was
a challenge. Working with adult learners from different continents that want to complete a Master degree was
an additional challenge. This paper describes how different MOOCs were used to learn about teaching -(meta)
e-learning. MOOCs provide diverse opportunities for teachers to learn and innovate in e-learning. From the
analysis of 5 MOOCs in the broad field of project management we took important lessons on how to structure
contents, how to prepare complex assignments and, the most important lesson of all, how to help students
to learn. This paper describes our journey of learning from MOOCs how to be better online teachers.
