    I'm a Mooc enthusiast. For 10 years I have attended to mooc courses in multiple levels - from short courses to a complete specialization (almost 2 years long). And Documental! Nuevas tendencias, nuevos formatos is one of the best. Well planned, well executed, tons of documentaries available, lots of theory references. I have recommended this course for all my friends and colleagues interested in learn about documentaries. It's wonderful.
