  • Open Education Week webinar - The Moral, Business & Policy Case for OER

    2017-03-27 @ 16:00 - 17:00

    The Internet, increasingly affordable computing and bandwidth, open licensing, open access journals and open educational resources (OER) provide the foundation for a world in which universal access to education is possible. Governments are supporting this shift with a move toward open policies: requiring public access to publicly funded resources. Dr. Cable Green, Director of Open Education at Creative Commons, will provide an overview of open licensing and OER, and discuss specific examples where institutions, governments and foundations have moved the default on funding, praxis and culture from “closed” to “open.”

Utilizing MOOCs to support refugees in entering HE or employment market is a strategy to currently being explored by various initiatives in line with ECs communication 2013 “wider use of new technology and open educational resources can contribute to alleviating costs for educational institutions and for students, especially among disadvantaged groups”
