The article analyzes the possibilities of the Ukrainian-language platform Prometheus for the improvement of professional skills of future teachers and their personal development. It is noted that mass open online courses are a logical continuation of the development of distance education courses, they support the principle of open education and globality, allow any user to form competences and acquire knowledge in various fields of human activity. In order to improve their own qualifications, future teachers can familiarize themselves with the methods of teaching subjects from leading teachers, analyze the structure and content of the courses, broaden their horizons and develop digital competence during the course. The structure and features of the online courses on the Prometheus platform: «Science of everyday thinking», «Critical thinking for teachers», «Media literacy for teachers», «Learning How to Learn: Powerful mental tools to help you master tough subjects» are considered. It is revealed that they differ in the number of weeks for course processing, the number of test tasks and the final tests.
