About the content
The first volume of the MOOC “Tourism Management at UNESCO World Heritage Sites” was published on FUN MOOC back in January 2018. It attracted the attention of more than 6’500 learners from 166 countries and provided insights into UNESCO’s principles and doctrines, Communication Technologies, Economy, Management and Planning, and more.
Thanks to its success, the UNESCO-UNITWIN Network “Culture, Tourism, and Development” has decided to launch a brand new second volume of the MOOC, with six new chapters (see “Course Schedule”).
This second volume is designed and run by an international network of universities: highly profiled researchers and professors share their knowledge with you in an accessible way on tourism at UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Tailored to policy makers, site managers, students and people active in the tourism industry, this new volume provides an introduction to tourism at UNESCO World Heritage Sites: focus of the course are heritage communication, management and marketing.
The MOOC is open to everyone wishing to learn more about how tourism works at UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It has, however, a special focus on professional figures such as academics, site managers, state agencies, and other professionals involved in tourism.
It is NOT necessary to have completed the first volume of this MOOC in order to register to the current course. For interested first-time participants, the “Tourism Management at UNESCO World Heritage Sites” MOOC manual, which gathers all chapter documents of the first volume, will be available for download at the start of the course.
