  3. 3. Open Education Definition Core and Transversal Dimensions Open education is a mode of realising education, enabled by digital technologies aiming to widen access and participation to everyone. It offers multiple ways of teaching and learning, building and sharing knowledge, as well as a variety of access routes to formal and non- formal education, bridging them. Open education means access to content, courses, support, assessment and certification in ways that are flexible, and accommodate diverse needs. Barriers, as regards for example entry or cost, are reduced or eliminated.

  4. 4. „ICT tools, Open Educational Resources (OERs), and open educational practices (OEPs) allow for an increase in the effectiveness of education, allowing for more personalised learning, a better learning experience. Ultimately, opening up education may lead to a situation where all individuals may learn anytime, anywhere, with the support of anyone, using any device.” Open Education Europa Opening up education through new technologies Initiative openeducationeuropa.eu ec.europa.eu/education/policy/strategic-framework/education- technology_en.htm (Sept 2013)
  5. 5. OER Definition […] „the open provision of educational resources, enabled by information and communication technologies, for consultation, use and adaptation by a community of users for non-commercial purposes.” unesco.org/new/en/communication-and-information/access-to-knowledge/open-educational-resources UNESCO (2002)
  6. 6. unesdoc.unesco.org/images/0021/002136/213605e.pdf What are OERs? Open Educational Resources „are any type of educational materials that are in the public domain or introduced with an open license. The nature of these open materials means that anyone can legally and freely copy, use, adapt and re-share them. OERs range from textbooks to curricula, syllabi, lecture notes, assignments, tests, projects, audio, video and animation.” Big and Little OERs (Weller, 2010) Massive OERs = OpenMOOCs (ECO Project, OE Consortium + EdX)

  21. 21. Barriers in the OERs/MOOCs development and adoption • rigid policies in formal education related to curricular systems and assessment practices; • the lack of possibility to officially accredit online courses, in spite of an impressive number of projects rlated to online courses in the last 15 years, and of the policy proposals coming from different or- ganizations. Such courses can only be used in a blended aproach in formal education; • the lack of strategies at national level related to MOOCs in formal and continuing education; • teachers lack of time and interest to explore, understand, evaluate and use new technologies, OERs and MOOCs in teaching-learning process; • a reduced number of training programs for adopting open educational practices; • lack of incentives, official recognition and promotion for teachers implementing open educational practices.
  22. 22. Blending MOOCs in university courses - EdX „We are taking what we are learning and the technologies we are developing in the large and applying them in the small to create a blended model of education to really reinvent and reimagine the classroom.” We need to go from lectures on the blackboard to online exercises, online videos. We have to go to interactive virtual laboratories and gamification. To go to completely online grading and peer interaction and discussion boards. Everything really has to change.” Anant Agarwal, 2013. Why massive open online courses (still) matter. A TED presentation, ted.com/talks/anant_agarwal_why_massively_open_online_courses_still_matter.html

  25. 25. Mobile learning features • Allow students to become familiar (aware) with the MOOC phenomenon and trends: •the most important players/platforms/offers, types of learning, interaction and specific pedagogies •to be able to search and evaluate useful and quality MOOCs; • To enlarge knowledge/topics of the course: to obtain an auxiliary support for students’ group project development; for personal/professional development • Allow students to have concrete views, opinions and proposals on MOOCs and to critically evaluate their usefulness for personal development and for different ways of integration in formal higher education courses. Aims of integrating MOOCs
  26. 26. Steps for MOOCs Integration • 1.MOOCs discovery and selection - #mooc: •openeducationeuropa.eu •mooc-list.com •futurelearn.com •class-central.com • 2.Participation in MOOCs –requirement: at least 10%/50% of the activities • 3.Learning Experience as Digital Story • 4.MOOCs participation evaluation
  27. 27. A Model for MOOCs Integration
  28. 28. - For teachers: - new skills and tasks: - complex course design/management - OERs and MOOCs curation - evaluation of distributed/collaborative activities of students, - facilitation of the local learning community and nurture of its integration in the global communities of MOOCs - improving knowledge in their own area of expertise - improving their competencies/skills for adopting new models of OEP - For students: - autonomy in assessing their own learning needs for choosing the MOOCs in which to participate - exposing to: - high quality materials created with top educational technologies - collaboration in global learning communities - a broader range of experiences Benefits/Challenges of MOOCs integration in blended courses/flipped classrooms make xMOOCs more close to cMOOCs
  29. 29. • Does your institution have an open education strategy? If so, what is it? If not, why is this so? • How do the OE dimensions fit your existing/future open education scenarios? • How do you integrate OER/MOOC in your teaching and learning practices?
