This article aims to present the results of a case study of the use of Massive Open Online Courses as a digital learning strategy to promote education for sustainable development. The research focuses on the results of four Massive Open Online Courses offered to more than 17,000 participants; a case study research method was carried out to identify the didactic activities recommended to integrate on the Massive Open Online Courses of education for sustainable development. Among the results, it was found that challenge-based learning didactic activities develop participants’ skills that can be transferred to real-world scenarios and allow learning to become more profound and durable. The results also show that a better understanding of the network dynamics to explore how to develop a robust peer-learning environment is necessary. Future works are recommended to explore the potentials of big data to anticipate the needs of the participants’ digital skills.
