The Open Classroom strand within EDEN was launched in 1995, with the focus on: distance education and new technologies in school level education and training, mapping and exchange of information about initiatives, and the transfer of ideas from the more traditional areas of ODL to the school sector. The success of the first conference, entitled “The Open Classroom”, and the continuing interest of the international ODL professional community was the catalyst to develop this movement further within EDEN.
The Open Classroom Working Group functions with the participation of European experts, researchers and academics of school-level distance and e-learning from EDEN member organisations.
