The Prado joins two innovative educational projects, iTunes U channel and MiriadaX

The Museo del Prado joins iTunes U, a channel designed to provide a service chiefly to the academic world, with a total of 309 audio files and 441 videos available in each speaker’s native language (598 in Spanish, 92 in English, 25 in French, 20 in Italian, 12 in German and 3 in Russian, Dutch and Hungarian respectively).

The Prado is thus following the lead of universities such as Harvard and Cambridge, museums such as the Metropolitan, Tate and MoMA and libraries all over the world that have their own site on this platform, which includes all kinds of educational material and facilitates searching through a complete system of keywords.

Under the agreement with Telefónica, the Prado will also take part in MiriadaX, Telefónica Educación Digital’s platform for massive open online courses (MOOCs), which has more than a million enrolled students and more than 200 courses devised by the Universia network of Ibero-American universities. This will make it possible to create courses featuring content from the Prado that are widely available to Spanish-speaking audiences.

Miriada X is the second largest MOOC in the world. More than 1,000,000 students have enrolled to date: 1,290 universities of Ibero-America are currently connected through MiriadaX, making these courses available to a potential audience of 600 million Spanish and Portuguese speakers. During this time, it has published 144 courses offered by 33 different universities and has a community of professors with a membership of 990.

The Museo del Prado brings to iTunes U the files of the FAMP annual courses from 1988 to 2013 and summer courses from 2009 to 2012, consisting of a total of 309 audios and 121 videos, including papers and talks given by leading international art historians such as Haskell, Rosenblum and Pérez Sánchez; writers such as John Berger, Arturo Pérez Reverte and Antonio Muñoz Molina; artists such as Bill Viola and Chillida; directors of major international museums and thinkers and philosophers, in addition to a total of 320 videos encompassing lectures given by museum specialists between 2010 and 2014; the Academic Chairs held by Montebello, Salvatore Settis, Jonathan Brown and Manuela Mena; the monographic courses taught from 2009 to 2014; the one-day conferences on art and restoration; and the international symposia, conferences and seminars held from 2011 to 2013 as part of the programme of the Prado’s Study Centre.

The incorporation of the Museo del Prado into these platforms is a new initiative intended to optimise and facilitate access to content and information through the systematic production of audio-visual material to be disseminated through different Internet channels. The iTunes U service makes possible the podcasting of various files, subscription to content sources and viewing via streaming or downloading on various devices.

Android users can access the Museo del Prado content through its YouTube channel, where the files of the Fundación de Amigos del Museo del Prado will shortly be available.
