10 March, 03:00-04:00 pm CET
Possibilities and chances for Open Educational Ressources
Open Educational Resources are a new challenge for educational institutions, but also a great chance for all learners worldwide. However, within the last years, the focus has mainly been on making educational resources accessible worldwide and free of charge. The possibilities of “adaptation by a community of users”, which means that not only renowned academics, but all users may create, edit, share or translate educational material, are often disregarded. The webinar discusses the current upheaval in the creation, copying and distribution of learning materials, and in particular the problems with commercially prepared teaching aids. It gives a short insight into the recent developments of OER and finally presents Open Knowledge Worker as a free platform for the collaborative creation of eLearning content.
