In mid-September, Galde received a request from Olga Rivera, Professor of Innovation at the University of Deusto, to give her technological support in the launch of Oniversity, the virtual university for active and healthy older people.
Oniversity is an online platform designed so that people over 55 can train in those topics that interest them most, choosing from various training options and thematic lines, a radically innovative project in the field of experiences generated for older people, which It will allow them to continue learning and socializing with absolute safety from the place that is most comfortable for them. The platform is fully operational from a smart mobile phone, a fixed computer, laptop or a tablet.
Oniversity includes three training options:
- Conferences. This format consists of a meeting place in which senior profiles will give presentations on topics of interest, as well as possibly hand out documentation.
- Workshops. Through the workshops, a little more depth will be given to topics covered in a more specific way, such as conferences. For this, it will be a somewhat more extensive training than the conferences and with some more attached documentation.
- Courses. This format is already the next step to the seminar, and is based on giving complete training on a specific topic. Therefore, it is expected that this format can be extended for several weeks or months, also providing access to the amount of documentation that the teacher sees fit.
Additionally, Oniversity will address various topics, such as health, digital skills, entrepreneurship, etc.
