MOOC are an educational phenomenon that have become a key resource for lifelong learning in today’s society. The most common MOOC model offered by the main platforms is called xMOOC, which has a behaviorist approach, where the role of the participant is minimal, being reduced to their contributions in a forum. There are proposals that try to bring the original model of MOOC or cMOOC, with a connectivist approach, through external virtual learning communities using digital social networks or any type of collaborative platform on the web. This collective knowledge, result of participation in the MOOC, has the disadvantage of being hidden in a space with excess information, disordered and alien to the MOOC platform. This paper presents and analyzes an experience that aims to solve these problems within platforms where the content cannot be modified while offering teaching, through the use of external web tools. These make it possible to integrate and organise the learning results generated throughout the MOOC, within the content itself, at the same time as they were happening, building a course that is fed in real time by the contributions of its participants, giving them greater prominence.
