Abstract: The present paper analyses the development and results of an online postgraduate training course addressed to pre-service teachers from different educational fields who aim to be trained in intercultural matters. The mentioned course was implemented in 2013-2014 at the University of Extremadura. Discussion groups and log books were used from a qualitative methodology. Seven faculty members and 16 graduate students coming from eight different training modules participated in the study. A number of comparative categories among the modules that allowed the development of a strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) matrix were established. Results demonstrate that the online graduate training was especially beneficial to generate skills that will support potential teachers when facing intercultural classes. Nevertheless, there are still some facets related to internal teacher's coordination on content and activities that will be enhanced in future sessions of the course.
