(1) Background: Latin America was one of the last regions of the world to become affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a response to the emergency, virtual education was implemented in almost every country of the region. (2) Methods: A massive open online course about epilepsy was made using only open access software and platforms following the international league against epilepsy competence-based domains for epileptology teaching. (3) Results: 250 healthcare students from 8 different Latin American countries enrolled in the course and only 17.2(%) of them had previously participated in courses like this one. This course had a completion rate of 37.2(%) and, of the students that completed the course, 98.3(%) would participate in course like this in the future. (4) Conclusion: In conclusion, MOOCs can be easily implemented as a powerful pedagogic strategy during the COVID-19 pandemic and can have a positive impact not only in in its proposed learning objectives but it can help in closing the gap that prevent Latin American healthcare students to acquire actively knowledge trough them.
