The existing Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) about Frailty, Falls, and Functional Loss Education (3Fights@Edu) are scarce in Europe and the information packages are mainly focused on specific disease/health topics (for instance, chronic illness, disability, obesity or nutrition). In this paper, the overall structure and organization of a MOOC-related with geriatric syndromes is presented, in order to promote active aging and to maintain independent living, specifically to the elderly people and their families. Overall, the effectiveness of the proposed MOOC, designed as 3Fights@Edu MOOC, can be seen as a starting point for the development of communication channels between primary and secondary end-users for the prevention of geriatric conditions.
