The research presented comes within the framework of the national project: Platform for the management and dissemination of open content through the use of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Course) in 2018. This is part of the policy of the Agrarian University of Havana to promote the use of MOOCs in the races that are offered. The work constitutes an analysis of the different MOOC definitions with their distinctive characteristics, passing through the different types of MOOCs that are known up to the adoption of that technology from the pedagogical point of view. There is also an analysis of a set of platforms that allow the development of MOOCs, deciding to use Edx for its potential from the pedagogical point of view or TalentLMS for being in the Cloud. Finally, the relationship between MOOCs and Learning Objects is established based on the advantages they offer for students and teachers, ending with some examples of MOOCs used or developed in Cuba as part of the strategy of computerization of Cuban society.
