High quality research into open learning is indispensable. It provides important information to enhance learning with technologies, improving the learner’s experience, to assist effective decision-making, and helps to ensure the viability of products and services. This is vital in a field where change is constant and new innovations arise on a daily basis.
Significant interest from the professional community has clearly confirmed the relevance of the EDEN initiative to run a forum: the Research Workshops. The EDEN Research Workshop series represent the meeting place of top European and global research for open learning and draws the map of major trends in the field.
