What is EOL?
EOL is the Online Education platform of the Universidad de Chile, administered by Online Education Office of the Information Technologies Vicepresidency. This Office leads the development of technical and human capacities as well as new technologies for education, in order to respond to the needs and particularities of university organizations and academic units linked to teaching.
The Online Education Office seeks to contribute to improving the teaching-learning process for all educational levels: undergraduate, graduate and long-life education, by providing a Learning Management System (LMS), as well as support in instructional design for online education and in the production of courses in this format.
The LMS platform that EOL provides is based on the open source project Open edX, Initially developed by Harvard University and MIT for conducting Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). This feature makes it stable and scalable to support tens of thousands of users.
