The MOOC is aligned with the European agenda 2020 which recognises the need for digital literacy skills. The MOOC was designed by the University of Salford in collaboration with four European universities (City College, Thessaloniki, Greece; Kaunas Technical University, Lithuania; University of Lodz, Poland; University of National and World Economy, Bulgaria). The course was created to help future digital marketers to develop their individual as well as professional online skills and aimed at boosting international trade prospects.

MOOC comprises 48 videos containing theoretical background from academic staff, as well as industry insights from key professional speakers. Each video is accompanied by activities, designed to help put that theory into practice.

A trial (teaser) digital campaign aiming at JEMSS brand promotion was launched between the 13th and 19th of August 2014). According to prior assumptions, students prepared an entire campaign project and estimated a yearly campaign budget of 5,337.81 EUR for activities.
