Currently there is no shortage of educational resources. There is a huge abundance, not just in content itself, but teaching practices available through videos and interactive applications: open educational resources (OERs), massive open online courses (MOOCs), educational websites, youtube channels, etc. How should university education in this open context? Does it make sense to base teaching in an industrial model of pure transmission of knowledge? What experiences are there in Spain on MOOCs? How can affect classroom teaching? What should be taught and how? What role does computational thinking? In this context of open content, is there a process of improving the delivery of teaching in class?
