ABSTRACT
This work explores on the different phases of the student's participation in a MOOC. For this particular study three phases of a MOOC are defined: pre-MOOC, MOOC and post-MOOC. This work presents an innovative framework with the aim to create full engagement for the learners on massive open online learning environments. The proposed framework was prepared with the aim to increase the engagement and motivation of the student from the enrollment step to the start of the course, but the most important objective is to extend the interaction beyond the end of the course, the post-MOOC phase. This work explores the experience from two "MicroMaster'' specializations in the edX platform: "Professional Android Developer'' and one specialization taught in Spanish: "E-Learning for teachers: create innovative activities and content''.
