Conference Derivative Article. Every day, people need to be trained, either to complement their professional skills or because of personal interests that lead to their well-being. Online education, especially MOOC and SPOC are good alternatives for carrying out continuing educational processes, but are not enough when it comes to learning motor skills. This paper shows a research approach on how MOOC can expand its functionalities so that it can be applied to learning motor skills. It also proposes the development of a project to integrate three components: the integration component, the wearable component and the open edX component for the future development of a "salsa" course. Finally, it proposes an architecture based on the 4+1 view model, where the functionality in different areas of the design is shown.
