The use of a co-creation process within e-learning practices enables learners to live positive experiences as they are more actively involved in the learning process. Starting from this consideration, the paper aims to demonstrate that using a co-creation approach to design a Massive Open Online Course allows amplification of the learning experience as well as the children's knowledge and awareness of digital health literacy issues, particularly of cyber-bullying. To this end, a case study that involves teachers and students from a primary school in Rome has been implemented. To engage students, two participative methodologies (open space technology and storytelling) are used. The results of the case study show a positive impact of the co-creation strategy on both the students' engagement in co-producing the learning content and their awareness and knowledge of the cyber-bullying phenomenon and digital health literacy issues.
