Inria Learning Lab was created in june 2016 in order to make digital learning a key research issue and to bring Inria research teams together around this topic. Inria Learning Lab’s missions are to :
- produce a variety of digital training courses (those resulting directly from Inria research, those created with partners to develop a digital culture, or those developed as a research object);
- support the development of new technologies for e-education;
- be an actor in the transformation of education with digital tools;
support e-education research at Inria;
- promote Inria’s know-how in the field of e-education.

A bit of history
Inria Learning Lab has been created from the “Mooc Lab Inria”, a structure founded in 2013.
In 2013, with the CINES, the Mooc Lab has set up and deployed the France Université Numérique platform, based on OpenEdX. This action has been a major step in implementing a national MOOC policy.
Adding project management and pedagogical support skills to its initial team, the Mooc Lab then produced 12 MOOCs in 3 years, distributed to more than 60,000 people from a hundred different countries, and gained real visibility and recognition in the field.
The Mooc Lab has especially carried out the courses of the uTOP sub-project on the Valorization of Research through Training. This project was an iDEFI pilot project designed in coordination with the UNIT Foundation, via fuscia (Inria – Digital Universities partnership). It aimed to design and implement a new approach to the valorization of research results through a proactive policy of training engineering students and engineers in companies.
