The work here presented concerns the realization of a MOOC hosted by a platform ( www.europeanmoocs.eu ), developed by the University of Naples Federico II under a CIP European Program, offering services to a variety of instructional designs and pedagogical approaches. The online course concerns an important chapter of projective geometry, commonly known as ``The Theory of Shadows'', which participants have to learn in order to draw the lights and shadows of space objects–-from simple plane figures, to more complex geometrical solids and elements of architecture–-correctly. The focus is on the essence of the discipline of drawing–-exercising creativity and giving free space for students to express themselves. In order to maximize students' learning in creative way, we have created a MOOC, comprising two main components: contents and pedagogical design, as a software package. More particularly, learning design puts the learning journey at the heart of the design process and provides a set of tools and information to support a learner activity-based approach. In our experience, we can't say that a MOOC is the best way of teaching graphic education, but we can say that is the most improved one.
