Program description

MSc in SmartEdTech

The SmartEdTech program is developed in a blended learning modality combining online courses (90%) and two intensive weeks in Nice (in October and in April).

The SmartEdTech program aims to develop a quality approach to digital education with a co-creative and participative vision. The program addresses the current social and economic issues for professionals (designers, engineers, ergonomists, etc.) who are involved in the creation of digital technologies for education (EdTechs), and the education professionals who use them.

The challenge is to improve today's education and equally to create tomorrow’s education, through breakthrough digital pedagogies.

The program, taught in English and French, is offered online. However, your presence during two weeks per year is mandatory.

Admission requirements

Among all the students welcomed to this program we have a dual priority:

  • To contribute to improving the education of today and creating the education of tomorrow. This primarily targets those who are responsible for the education of our young people (professors, teachers, and tutors).
  • To train new professionals who will create educational products in the broad sense, not only technologies, but especially those related to pedagogy.

SmartEdTech incorporates both initial and continuing education with a desire for diversity, in both the public and private sectors. More importantly, at the intersection of these current professions, this training program aims to help graduates develop hybrid skills (for example as researchers and also entrepreneurs or industry professionals) who will create their own profession, tools and paths of tomorrow.

Does this course require proof of English proficiency?
