MOOC Dys eBooks to download for free!

We promised it: we would provide you with all the contents of the MOOC Dys in the form of free downloadable ebooks. Promise kept: here are the three MOOC Dys ebooks we compiled out of the online training modules 😉


We promised you that after the first session of MOOC Dys in 2018, we would provide you with the course notes in the form of a free downloadable e-book.

Some of you have been generous enough to offer us help, to send us your own notes, etc.

MOOC Dys books in six languages

But the language of MOOC Dys is English… We, therefore, worked in this language to reassemble all the modules in a readable way:

  • the common path: open to all
  • the parents’ path
  • the professionals’ path

We hesitated about the format. We know that many of you are familiar with the PDF format.

Unfortunately, it is a rather heavy format, which is perfectly suitable for printing but not necessarily for reading on screen.

MOOC Dys books in epub format

We have therefore opted for a format more suitable for screen reading: the epub format.

This format can be read not only on a PC but also on a tablet or smartphone. The text adapts to the size of your screen.

Moreover, with some readers, you can adapt your text to suit your needs or those of your child:

  • the size of the characters
  • line adjustment
  • the distance between the words
  • the distance between the lines
  • the type of font
  • etc.

How to read the MOOC Dys eBooks?

We recommend Readium 2 and it is also this player that we have included in our reading tools.
